How To Start Your Year Decoding GIGANTIC Words



Your readers will LOVE decoding gigantic multisyllabic words.  Here are 2 strategies to help your readers go big in their reading this year. 

PLUS a free ebook from the Reading Crewith 23 literacy FREEBIES and resources to start your year! 

  • SPOT THE SMALL WORDS

Teach your readers to SPOT THE SMALL WORDS inside big words. In the word diminished, readers can see the small word "in." Readers who know the word "dim" will also spot "dim."

  • NOTICE PREFIXES AND SUFFIXES

Teach readers to notice prefixes and suffixes. In diminished, readers can see the suffixes"ish" and "ed."

  • VOILA!

A ten-letter word - overwhelming to many struggling readers - is now just a four-part word, made up of parts readers may already know!

  • HELP YOUR STUDENTS EXPLORE BIG WORDS

Select multisyllabic words that contain small words and/or prefixes, suffixes, roots. Help your readers see the parts they know inside the big words.  I like to circle the parts.





  • TEACH READERS HOW TO RECOGNIZE AND PRONOUNCE PREFIXES & SUFFIXES

For readers who don't already know how to recognize and pronounce all the prefixes, suffixes and root/base words they'll encounter in gigantic words - a systematic, targeted, explicit, scaffolded intervention program will teach them all the word parts they'll need to know!

This year, introduce your readers to big, gigantic, multisyllabic words - and watch their confidence and excitement grow!
