engaging in texts they can read without difficulty.
How can you help your child with this strategy at home?
1. When your child goes to read a text, have him or her use the IPick
method to explain why that specific text was chosen.
2. Help your child recognize when a text is too difficult. They are
taught to ask:
a) Are there two or more words on a page that I don·t know?
b) Is this book hard to understand?
c) When I read it does it sound choppy and slow?
Thank you for your continued support at home!
Please go to your child's blog site to see them reading and explaining a good fit book for them.
