Strategy Cards

  1. 1. Prompting for Strategic Reading<br />Bettie Komar<br />November 2009<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Check the picture<br /> Before I read a page, I take a quick glance at the picture to help get ready for the words I may see. <br />
  4. 4. Check the picture<br /> If I get stuck on a word, I take a quick look to see if the picture can help me.<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. As soon as I see a word I don’t know, I check the picture and start the sentence over. This helps me think about a word that would make sense. <br />
  7. 7. When I figure out a word, like I just did with “turkey,” I read the whole sentence again to help me remember what the author is saying.<br />
  8. 8. If someone helps me with a word, I read the sentence again. It’s good to hear myself say the whole sentence with the new word in it. This helps me remember what I’m reading.<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Say the first sound(s) and reread<br /> Another way I help myself when I’m stuck on a word is to say the first sound or two and reread the sentence. Sometimes, this helps the word just pop right out of my mouth.<br />
  11. 11.
  12. 12. Find chunks I know<br /> Lots of times, new words have chunks I know from other words. Using chunks I know helps me figure out new words.<br />
  13. 13. Sometimes I see two words I know and put them together, like “in” and “to” make “into.” That’s a quicker way to figure out a new word than by saying the sounds one at a time.<br />
  14. 14. ???????????????????<br />As I read, I ask myself:<br />
  15. 15.
  16. 16.
  17. 17. Does it sound right? <br /> Authors choose their words carefully so that we will understand the story or information they are sharing. <br />
  18. 18.
  19. 19. Does it look right?<br />The words I say have to match the words I see <br />on the page. I can’t add words that aren’t there. <br />“Yes, I will,” said Little Pig.<br />
  20. 20. Does it look right?<br /> How long _________________<br /> or short ___<br /> a word is <br /> can help me know if I’m saying the right word.<br />
  21. 21. Does it look right?<br /> Sometimes words mean the same but do not look the same. How long a word is and how it ends can help me know if the word I’m saying matches what I say.<br />Mom Mother<br />
  22. 22. Does it look right?<br /> Looking closely at the beginning of the word and checking through it left to right can help me know if I’m saying the right word.<br />Mom went into the shop.<br />
  23. 23. Do you remember learning to ride a bike?<br />You had to do many things at once<br />
  24. 24. Balance<br />
  25. 25. Pedal<br />
  26. 26. Steer<br />
  27. 27. Watch where you’re going<br />
  28. 28. Sometimes, you had to start over!<br />
  29. 29. Do we really use strategies <br />one <br />at<br />a<br />time?<br />
  30. 30. Or do we use them<br />together?<br />
  31. 31. Together!!!<br />
  32. 32. Your brain is very busy!!<br />Do I know this word or do I need to figure it out?<br />What do I do now that I’m stuck?<br />What do I do when it doesn’t make sense?<br />Can I picture what’s happening?<br />Can I stop and tell myself what I’ve read so far?<br />What’s going to happen next?<br />
  33. 33. Reading can be a lot of work, BUT<br />The more you read, the better you get at reading. <br />The better you get at reading, the more fun it is to read!<br />
