As students read independently, they’ll run into words they have trouble decoding. Have your kids cut out these fun “tricky word” bookmarks to help them to recognize and record these words so that they can practice decoding them!
Help students prepare for reader’s workshop by picking books to read independently. Students will choose three books that look appealing and read one page. If there are five or less words that are tricky to read, they've found a book that is just right!
Fluent readers are able to derive meaning from the text and make connections! Have your students read independently, and then check for comprehension by having them share how it connects to other books they've read.
After independent reading, check in to see how students are understanding what they read. Having students make character paper dolls is a fun way to assess their comprehension and bring the story to life!
