Get Ready to Read!
Reading is one of the easiest and most rewarding things to teach if the right materials are used — materials designed to reach and build upon the struggling student's current skill level.
To empower them start on the road to becoming successful and confident readers, there are some basic skill building techniques and worksheets available on site:
- Re✓erseFixUp for letter reversals
Reverse Fix Up ReverseFixUp Reverse FixUp
Doing ReverseFixUp not only develop thinking skills, but they help a child's brain isolate the individual lines involved in the creation and recognition of a letter. This is essential for students that reverse their letters. (example of a Re√erseFixUp dot pattern)
- Letter Recognition
Basic language arts skills like tracing letters and alphabet matching tasks, along with ReverseFixUp, are additional proven ways to help familiarize students with individual letters.
- Word Decoding
To give students the confidence to even attempt reading, start with lists of word families. Have the student highlight the word-family letters and then read the whole word.
eg., an, can, man, pan
As they progress to larger words using this technique, they will read more confidently and increase their fluency. (samples)
- Beginner Reading Booklets
It is nearly impossible to find books that use small words for beginning readers. We have provided a series of little booklets, available on site in the teaching resources section that are designed to go with the word decoding lists. To make it more fun, students can decorate them with stickers or color them. These booklets are at their reading level — thus providing them with a book they can actually, successfully and confidently, read. (samples)
