Early Reading Strategies
Look at the pictures for clues.
Get your lips ready! Say the first few sounds. Read to the end of the sentence and say it again.
Stretch it out. Stretch the word out slowly and then put the sounds together.
Chunk the word. Look for a chunk, like -at or -an, and then look for the word part, like -th or -ed.
Skip it and hop back. Skip the word, read to the end of the sentence, then hop back and read it again.
Flip the vowel. Try the short vowel sound, then the long vowel sound.
Try to reread the sentence. Try a word that makes sense.
If you have tried all of these and still don't know, ask for help!
