Skim It

Skimming, a reading skill that can be acquired quite easily, is more fun to learn in practice sessions that are short and have a "game element."

For word-skimming, have the students quickly scan each page of a current reading assignment in sequence.

After you say each of these phrases, "I see a word that means. . .."
                                                        "I see a word that is the opposite of "
                                                        "I see a word with the suffix "ness"
                                                        "I see a word that is sad,"
                                                        "I see a word that makes me hungry,"
                                                        "I see a word that rhymes with" ..and so on.
Have the children respond orally.

Ask individual students to do the questioning while you skim along with the others.
