"It Takes Two" Cross-Checking-An Early Reading Strategy
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Beginning readers need to learn how to bring together two sources of information simultaneously. They have to think about what would make sense and think about letters/sounds; cross-checking. Most children prefer to do one or the other, but not both. Therefore, some children guess something that is sensible but ignore the visual (letter/sound) and others guess something which is close to the visual but makes no sense in the sentence. This activity will demonstrate how to cross check.
