Now that there is such a wealth of knowledge in regards to how kids learn to read, we know that we want to teach our kids decoding strategies, not guess work. So, how do we help students to apply their phonics knowledge when they get stuck on a word? I hope that some of these characters might be able to help them out!
These one-page handouts are a perfect way to display all of these characters in one place - use as scaffolds during reading sessions with your students.
The Decoding Crew include:
Colour + black/white versions.
