Transcript of Reading Stamina- Does this make sense?

A Reading Stamina Strategy Does this make sense? The first strategy you can use to become a better reader is to ask yourself questions as you read.

For example, if you read out loud:"She rode the house into the barn." you can say:"Hmm, does that make sense? Did she really ride a house? What else could she ride? What word begins with an "H" that you can ride? The word 'horse' looks a lot like the word "house"--that was a very good try at reading that word, but it also needs to make sense, doesn't it?" Helping yourself to become a better reader..... Questions to consider while you read..... * What would make sense here?
* Did what I just read make sense?
* If not, how can I fix it?
* What word would fit here?
* Does it sound right?
* If not, how can I fix it?
* Do the letters and the pictures match up? Even expert readers sometimes make errors or substitutions in the text without realizing it. Unless those substitutions change the meaning, you don't have to worry about them. Instead of calling them mistakes or errors, we call them Miscues. A miscue is any deviation from the text. Miscues 1. If a miscue doesn't change the meaning, you can ignore it. "He rode his bike in / on the road."
2. If it sounds wrong in your head, it probably is.
3. If you are continuously miscuing, select a new text.
4. If your errors are numerous, and you are not gaining any meaning or understanding from your text, change it! Some things for you to keep in mind: PICTURE PROMPT: Look for any pictures, or close your eyes and imagine what is happening.

RERUN: Reread the sentence or phrase to clarify the meaning so far. This can help in predicting the upcoming word, giving you more time to access it.

CONTEXT PROMPT: Consider if what you just read made sense; use this information to predict what words would "make sense" or "sound right" in a sentence. Check the print to confirm the prediction.

READ-ON: Sometimes, it's easier to press on and come back. This helps you use the meaning (context) of the surrounding words, and sometimes the initial letter(s) to figure out the problem word.

COMPARING: Consider if you have seen a word that looks like the troubling one; or write a similar word, i.e. if the hard word is "fright", point out or write down "night. "

STRUCTURAL PROMPT: Think about the word's parts: play-ing; out-side.

LOOK BACK TO PREVIOUS CONTEXT: Sometimes you may be able to recognise that you've seen a word somewhere else. Looking back or identifying the former context can help you recall the word. Tips for when you're stuck
