When successful readers encounter unfamiliar words, they utilize strategies— for example, identifying word parts such as syllables and suffixes—to help them figure out pronunciation and meaning. This resource offers dozens of practice pages that give older struggling readers multiple opportunities to review and apply these word-study skills, recognize common spelling patterns, boost their word recognition and vocabulary development, and gain confidence as they read and encounter new words. As a result, students become more fluent readers. For use with Grades 3–6.
