Tonight, I was contemplating and thinking about struggling readers and how they react to a new word. Many times, they just give up without trying. They are essentially a casualty of the text, a big-word victim.
In light of that, I decided to begin this year by reviewing some word attack strategies and adding some karate clipart, hopefully to empower kids. I want them to feel like they really can attack that scary word and be victorious!
I think the presentation is cute. It's going up tonight on TPT if you are interested. Here are some photos of a couple of slides.
