This week our reading strategy is Tune Into Interesting Words.
This strategy is part of the expand vocabulary area of reading. Good readers have a great vocabulary, which means they know and understand the meaning of lots of different words.
Tune into interesting words means you stop and think about words that are new, different or unusual while you read.
Knowing what these words mean helps you in all areas of literacy, as it improves your comprehension while reading and you can use the interesting words in your writing. Understanding interesting words also helps you with your speaking and listening.
In class, we have been recording interesting words from our class novel, picture story books and independent reading texts. Our challenge is to remember these words to use them in the future!
Miss Jordan looked through some books on her bookshelf at home and found lots of interesting words. She used Tagxedo to create a word cloud to share the words.
