“who or what the passage is about?”
“where does it take place?”
– Reading the question before reading passage.
Knowing what you are looking for, will help you read with more understanding
– Make a mental picture
while you read, make a mental picture of story.
– Underline key words
-write the words with picture beside them.
Make up the story or relation
e.g. Friend (friday is the end of the week and that’s when I meet my friend)
– use phonics to help with spelling.
-estimation for verifying:
Estimation will help you verify that the real answer is in the right direction. e.g 38+51=? round up to 40+50=90
-always show the detail work beside the question.
even if the answer is wrong,the teacher will give some credit for the correct method that you use.
