  • Envision – Uses pictures to help read the words.
  • Dr Stretch – Sounds out each letter of the word and then blends them together.
  • Numero Uno – Focuses on saying the first sound.
  • Leaper – Leaps over unknown words and the returns to the start.
  • Chunkinator – Break words into chunks of letters that make known sounds.
  • Flipster – Flips the vowel sound to be long or short.
  • Re-tracer – Re-traces reading and begins the sentence again, this time trying something different.
