When reading a story where new words are repeated multiple times, my student would write the ‘hard’ words down in a list. We’d work on those words separately. Then she would read the story and each time she encountered the ‘hard’ word, if she could read the word correctly, I would put a check mark after the word in the list. At the end of the reading she could see that she’d successfully read a word that she previously didn’t knowmultiple times. That list really helped make her aware of all the progress she was making!
