Framing Words and Parts of Words - Emergent Readers
Learning to frame words is a useful technique for emergent readers to block out the distractions when reading text. Either a whole word or a part of the word can be framed to block out the distractors and allow the reader to concentrate on decoding. I have used several techniques with my emergent readers to frame words. I found a great tool for framing this week. It is a set of beginner chopsticks (as pictured). The students can frame a consonant blend or a whole word and are able to concentrate on the word or word chunk. My students are enjoying using this new tool.
