Forming good habits when reading can greatly enhance our ability to understand the information that is presented. As the word strategies implies, there is no one strategy that is better for you than the rest of them. The most effective strategy differs for just about everyone. Just like any form of learning, we all thrive under certain circumstances and are hindered by others. With some experience each student will learn what works best for them. We encourage primary teachers to expose students to as many different techniques, as time will allow for. We also must consider that the type of text we are working with also dictates which strategy will work best for that individual student. Students may learn a method that works great with expository text yet does not bode so well for them when it comes to working with narrative text. These worksheets will help immerse students in several different strategies to help them better understand what they are reading.
