Help a Beginning Reader Fix Mistakes While Reading

Questions to Help a Beginning Reader Fix Mistakes While Reading

Let's say a reader makes a mistake with this sentence.
We went for a walk in the rain.
The reader reads ran instead of rain.

Teach a reader to stop if something doesn't make sense. You could ask if it makes sense to go for a walk in the ran. Is a ran something you could walk in? Let's look closer at the word you read as ran.


Teach a reader to stop if something doesn't sound right. Would someone say they went for a walk in the ran? No, this isn't how a person talks. It didn't sound right. Always stop if what you read doesn't sound right. Then you can look more closely at the words and try to fix it.




Teach a reader to make sure a word looks right. Point to the word ran. Ask the reader if ran has a "r" sound at the beginning and a "n" sound at the end. You got that part right. Let's look at the middle sound now. Do you think ai makes the "a" sound like in ran? Right, ai makes a long a sound. Try reading the sentence again.
