What should I do if I don't know a word?
1- Look for chunks in the word. Do you see any little words you know in the bigger words?

2- Check the picture. Do the pictures give you an idea of what that word my be?

3- Get your mouth ready. Try to sound out the word.

4- Does the word look like another word you know?
cook/look, cake/bake, play/stay, ran/fan

5- Ask yourself:
Does that make sense?
Does it look right?
Does it sound right?
