Decoding Tricky Words

Help your child read new words by teaching them to look at picture clues, break each word up into parts, and sound out words one letter at a time. Make sure that your child also understands the meaning of new words.
As students get into more difficult books make sure they use a variety of strategies to figure out tricky words, such as checking the picture, looking at all parts of the word, and asking themselves if the word that they read sounds right in the context of the sentence.
