Can you chunk a word to read it when you need to?

January 2017


We are going to continue with working out what words mean by looking at the clues inside them. We are learning how to split the words into chunks to make them easier to read.


Try this at home. If a word is longer (or harder to read) look for chunks you know:


*Front chunks (aka prefixes) like un which means not

*End chunks (aka suffixes) like ing, ed and er

*Words in words like toothbrush (aka compound words)


Don't forget to talk about what the word means!
