When your child needs help reading a word, say...

*Look at the picture with your "eagle eye."

*Make the first sound with your "fish lips."

*Stretch out the sounds in the word like a "stretchy snake."

*Look for a part or chunk of the word you know like a "chunky monkey."

*Does the word make sense?

*Does the word sound right?

*I like the way you tried to work that out!
