Word Study “Cheat” sheet
In my book, The Next Step Forward in Guided Reading (2016), there are several activities for teaching word study. Each activity uses a different approach for teaching students letters, sounds, phonemic awareness and phonic skills. In order to get the most benefit out of these activities, teachers must follow the procedures. Laura Robinson, a reading teacher from Georgia, had the idea of condensing the procedures into a few pages so teachers could tape the pages to their guided reading tables as a ready reference for instruction. I’ve posted the Word Study “Cheat” Sheet under the Resources page (Guided Word Study section) of my website for you to download. Remember the ultimate goal of word study is not just to learn skills, but to apply these skills during reading and writing. Happy “cheating!”
