Chunk It! and a Great Resource

This week I'll be working with my students on the strategy of finding chunks that you do know in words.  I made this page of words to practice this skill with them.  These are words that my students probably can't read on their own, but I'm hoping this practice will show them how to they can figure out how to read bigger words.  Click on the picture to get your own copy.

A FABULOUS resource I've found for teaching reading comprehension is Read Works.  The best part is that it's FREE!!!  You guys all know that I love free!  You do have to sign up for an account to access some of the stuff though.  There are lesson plans by grade level and comprehension skill, along with reading passages with comprehension questions that start at grade 2.  The reading passages are difficult for my kids to read, but I've used them to model the skill and talk about it as a class.  I highly recommend everyone checking out this website.

We have a teacher planning day (aka I'll be in training all day) tomorrow and then a 3rd grade field trip on Tuesday.  Since it's a short week, we're not going to start a new word study pattern this week.  I have made 2 of the games for the next pattern (Long O CVVC, Long O CVCe, and Short O).  I'm going to try and make the 3rd game this week and then I'll actually be ahead!  I'll post them when I get done.


  1. That website is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  2. I can't wait to check out that website.

    We've started chunking parts of big words for a few minutes each day. I look ahead to find words that I know they will encounter in their reading and we do those. The kids love it so much it kind of cracks me up. I can really see it carrying over.

  3. Found you via Pinterest. Thank you for the awesome chunk it resource. I love using Read Works in my classroom too. Also I just love the look of your blog!! Teacher Ms H ~ Third Is the Word
