  • I look at the picture.
  • I think about the story.
  • I look at how the word begins.
  • I get my mouth ready to say the word.
  • I think about a word I know that has the same sound in it.
  • I see what I know in the word.
  • I try a word and see if it makes sense, sounds right, and looks right.
  • I go back and try again.
    • Look at the picture.
    • Does it make sense?
    • Does it sound right?
    • Look for chunks.
    • Get your mouth ready.
    • Does it look right?
    • Reread.
