This week’s video is the third and final video on decoding. So many of our children are visual learners, so what better way of teaching decoding than to take much of the mystery out of attacking words!!!
Once again I am using the resource, Recipe for Reading and sharing the last of the syllable patterns and the final three syllable types.
Take a look!!!
Keep in mind that if your reading time in class consists only of the practice of reading books at the child’s reading level….that’s not a reading program. That’s reading practice.
Make sure your student can decode, has phonemic awareness, has sight word vocabulary, knows language concepts, can read with fluency and can comprehend. These are the components of teaching a child to read. The three video series I just shared with you on multi-syllable decoding is an important part of helping our students to be the best readers we can make them.
Enjoy teaching decoding by helping students to learn these easy, visual strategies. Watch their faces as they begin to see the syllable patterns, syllable types and discover that they CAN DO IT!!!
You take care and I’ll see you next time!
