Terry's Tips

Vocabulary knowledge is a very important part of reading, but learning lots of new words can be overwhelming. Here’s a tip: Read the story once without using the coaches so that children can learn what the story is about before you begin teaching the new words. Also, don't feel like you have to teach every word. Pick out a few for this reading, and choose different words for the next time you read this story.
