Word Attack Strategies
What do good readers do when they come to a word they don't understand or if they read and it doesn't make sense?
  • Re-read.
  • Read on.
  • Use context and guess the meaning.
  • Look for a part in the word you already know.
  • Create a picture in your mind.
  • Ask questions.
Does it look right.......sound right........ and make sense?

The child must learn to take the initiative, make some links, and work at a difficulty.
