Animal Word Helpers {Reading Decoding Strategies}

I know there are a lot of variations of tricky-word word helpers and these are the ones that I like the most!  They work great especially if you can find a stuffed animal (or Beanie Baby) that goes with each one.  I hang them right next to my guided reading table.

Using decoding strategies while helping your students become independent readers is very important! I like to link the decoding strategies with an animal to help my students remember them.

Animal Decoding Strategies:-Fly Eye (use the picture for clues)
-Lips Fish (get your lips ready for the word)
-Stretchy Snake (stretch the word and put it back together)
-Chunky Monkey (find a chunk you know in the word)
-Flippy Dolphin (flip the vowel sound)
-Skippy Kangaroo (skip the word, finish the sentence and come back to the word)
-Asking Alligator (ask someone for help)

Today I was just looking for a link to order writing online but instead I found a great worksheet that helps practise both reading and speaking, This worksheets is indeed great. Not only it helps to promote greater understanding of the important matter but it also develop students’ independence in doing assignments and getting good marks. I will definitely download this one to try on my students and will inform about the reaction I’ve got. It would be good if some of the teachers shared their experience in the discussion too.

Yes, I agree with you, such a problem really exists. But it is very difficult to handle, because the level of the teachers are very different, and students in richer countries are able to use such services PP, and in poor countries, students can not do it.

alia said... genuinely appreciated understanding it

This is a very cool experience, when the teacher is trying to develop creativity in their students, but unfortunately not in all schools you can meet that practice. It was such a school I had and when I needed to write a thesis I did not always have enough inspiration and imagination to write all the text by myself that is why I prefer to use the help of the I think everyone may try it.
