Reading Should Make Sense........

If it doesn't:
Read it again.
Read it out loud.
Use prior knowledge and make connections.
Use punctuation to understand the author's meaning or the character's feelings.
Read the chapter name and look for clues.
Break the unknown word into parts - smaller words, prefix, suffix or base word.
Use a similar word to help figure out the unknown word.
Skip the word. Look for context clues as you read. Reread.
Make a guess at the word meaning and see if the guess makes sense.
Use resources - a dictionary, a glossary, a friend, or the teacher.
