Struggling or reluctant readers often have a difficult time making the connection between spoken sounds and written letters. To them, written words can seem like a bewildering forest of coded messages that they can’t decipher.
Bethanie Tucker, Ed.D. has been helping struggling readers crack the code for years by combining physical activity with the introduction of letters and their corresponding sounds. The result is that young readers grow confidence as they continue to learn letters and sounds that they can translate into understanding. Watch this brief video to see Dr. Tucker’s strategy to support reluctant readers in action.
To put these powerful methods to use in your school or district, schedule our full-day workshop, Tucker Signing Strategies for Reading, and see reading achievement and test scores grow.
