If your child is reading and comes to a word they don't know what can you do to help them instead of just telling them the word?????
1) try sounding the word out
2) find chunks in the word such as: ea, ch, th, sh, wh, oa, ai, ee .....
3) put a word in that would make sense
4) skip the unknown word, read the rest of the sentence, come back and fix it
When a child comes to a word they don't know and takes time to figure it out, always reread the whole sentence! This will help
