How can we find out meanings of unknown words in our reading?
Today we started our new class reader. We recorded the words we did not understand while we listened to the text being read aloud. We then used a range of strategies to find out the meanings of these words:
reading around the word,
asking a friend,
using a dictionary
using an online dictionary.
We then read the book again and realised how much better we understood the story the second time.
