Extra Practice for Struggling Readers: Word Study
By Linda Beech
When successful readers encounter unfamiliar words, they utilize strategies- for example, identifying word parts such as syllables and suffixes-to help them figure out pronunciation and meaning. This resource offers dozens of practice pages that give older struggling readers multiple opportunities to review and apply these word-study skills, recognize common spelling patterns, boost their word recognition and vocabulary development, and gain confidence as they read and encounter new words. As a result, students become more fluent readers.
