The Reading Strategy Battle...
Sounding it out vs Making meaning
Can't we all just get along?
I've noticed second graders tend to over use the strategy "sound it out." That is a good strategy but not in isolation and not if you confuse sounds. Do you remember the tricycle I showed you on curriculum night? We need to make meaning and use grammar skills too when coming to a difficult word. I promise you will see a difference in their reading if you can include both!
