First grade is such a pivotal point in a child’s education. This is why it is SO important to provide children with solid reading instruction. Part of this instruction is a focus on word attack strategies...what to do when you come to a word you can’t decode. A colleague gave me a copy of these cute decoding strategies posters a couple years back. I love them because they are a perfect method for helping first graders become aware of and responsible for applying decoding strategies.
