TEKS
  • 5)  Reading/word identification. The student uses a variety of word identification strategies. The student is expected to:
    • (A)  decode by using all letter-sound correspondences within a word (1-3)
    • (B)  blend initial letter-sounds with common vowel spelling patterns to read words (1-3)
    • (C)  identify multisyllabic words by using common syllable patterns (1-3)
    • (E)  use knowledge of word order (syntax) and context to support word identification and confirm word meaning (1-3); and
    • (F)  read both regular and irregular words automatically such as through multiple opportunities to read and reread (1-3).
