Base Words and Inflected Forms

Base Words and Inflected Forms

Children will often have trouble finding a word in the dictionary because they are looking up a word with its inflectional ending, not the word itself. Teach your child to break down words that have inflectional endings; once they identify the base word, they can look it up in the dictionary. This process can help avoid unnecessary frustration!

Sequence of Events and Symbolism

Sequence of Events and Symbolism

Good readers constantly make connections: initially, between a text and what they already know, and eventually, as they deepen their understanding of cause and effect and sequence of events, the relationship between ideas within a text. Graphic organizers and guiding questions can help children learn to identify these connections — eventually, they will make them on their own, without prompts!
