Independence in Reading!!!

Remember at this time of the year that we are really trying to build independence in the use of reading strategies for our students. They need to know how to "attack" a word that is unknown to them. It is so much easier for us to tell them the word and typically takes less time, but our goal is to turn out independent readers on any level. We can create holes for even our higher level readers if they do not have strong decoding skills. Help build confidence for all students in their reading by making sure that they

1-understand how to use each of the strategies,

2-understand when to use each of the strategies and

3-automatically go to the strategies when they are stuck.
