Leading to Decoding

I like your question. I also wonder when we understand when students are finally comprehending content, and are able to decode words instead of simply stating what they are seeing on a daily bases. I believe that the only way to distinguish the difference is to keep track of reading levels and honestly, change up words. If we as teachers keep using the same content and words and just change some of it up, than I honestly don't think they will learn how to decode them. I believe that as teachers we must have them identify words or sounds around them to see if they are comprehending what they are practicing and increase the level of words they work with. More practice and awareness will increase their decoding skills is what I believe.
