Good readers read words in groups instead of one at a time to make their reading sound like natural speech. They also pause after groups of words that go together.
Punctuation, including commas and end marks, can help readers know when to pause.
Target Skill: ConclusionsWhen we read, we can draw conclusions based on story details. A conclusion is a smart guess about something the author does not say directly. Good readers use what they know about real life and clues the author gives to draw conclusions about characters and events. We can use an inference map to figure out things not stated directly.
Target Skill: Author's Word ChoiceTarget Strategy: Infer/PredictInferring is similar to drawing conclusions. When readers infer, they use what they know to figure out things that the author does not tell in the text.
