Word-Level Reading Strategies

Total Word Count: (includes title) 40.
17 different words. 8 are high-frequency words and 13 are decodable.

Decodability Criteria: Words in this book are either high-frequency words or are decodable according to the
following criteria:
• one letter = one sound (e.g. mud)
• doubled letters = one sound (e.g. roll)

Decoding Strategy: Sound out each letter in the decodable words – ‘m’ ‘u’ ‘d’, ‘s’ ‘l’ ‘i’ ‘p’, ‘d’ ‘r’ ‘o’ ‘p’
etc., pointing to each letter as your students (or you, if necessary) pronounce the sounds.
Make sure you pronounce each sound in the blends separately – ‘s’ ‘l’ not ‘sl’. Ask
students (or help them) to blend the sounds together to pronounce the words –
‘s’ ‘l’ ‘i’ ‘p’ – slip! Point out that two of the same letters together in a word usually
represent just one sound – the two ls represent one ‘l’ sound in roll – ‘r’ ‘o’ ‘l’ – roll

Non-decodable Words: High-frequency words: the, way, home

Important Vocabulary in Text:
Action verbs
– slip, roll, dig, jump, slap, slop, drip, drop
