Independent Reading Strategies
By: Jill Marie Warner
When I get stuck on a word in a book.
There are lots of things to do.
I can do them all, please, by myself;
I don't need help from you.
I can look at the picture to get a hint,
Or think what the story is about.
I can get my mouth ready to say the first letter,
A kind of sounding out.
I can chop the word into smaller parts.
Or find smaller words in compound words
I can think of a word that makes sense in that place,
Guess or say blankï¿½ and read on
Until the sentence has reached its end,
Then go back and try these on:
Does it make sense?
Can we say it that way?
right to me?
Chances are the right word will pop out like the sun
In my own mind, can't you see?
If I've thought of and tried out most of these things
And I still do no know what to do,
Then I may turn around and ask
For some help to get me through.
