To master reading comprehension, it is imperative that children learn to decode written words into oral forms. Without a strong grasp of phonics by the end of third grade, students experience frustration with reading and often fall behind in their academic careers.
Word Recognition – a six-page laminated quick reference guide – gives teachers on-the-spot strategies to help students recognize simple to complex words and tools to assess how well students are doing in word recognition development. It also includes fun learning activities that guide students toward identifying, building, and using words.
With an overview on how to effectively incorporate word ladders and families, and word-building into instruction, Word Recognition equips teachers to confidently help students who struggle with word analysis learn to recognize most words automatically.
