Literacy Strategy of  the Week:
This week we will focus on the comprehension strategy of visualization! This strategy teaches the children to "Make a picture in their brains."

For Accuracy this week we will focus on the strategy of : Skip the Word and Go Back. When children come to a word that is difficult one strategy to use is to skip the word and read to the end of the sentence using the other words to help them get the "Tricky" word. This is a powerful strategy that children find very helpful!
