Today I introduced two reading strategies:
1. Look at the pictures.
2. Does it make sense?
We read a level 4 book that had hard animal words in it, but matching pictures. We talked about how our brain and our mouth are going to be working together to help us read those words. We will give it a try and check the picture to see if it makes sense. I also had a reader share out how they used pictures today to help them read!
This is just our mini lesson for the next few weeks. If your child is in a different place, they will be focusing on their needs during instruction time with me. I am trying to record it in Progress Book so you have an idea what's going on!
