Perfetti (1985, as cited in Netten, Droop, & Verhoeven, 2011) defines decoding as "the ability to transform printed letter strings into phonetic code" (p. 414). Decoding will help pupils to enhance reading comprehension skill. This is due to pupils who are able to know letters well will be able to read well (Lerkkanen et al, 2004). Decoding activities aid pupils in acquiring letter-sound corresponding knowledge (Oyetunde, 2002). When pupils are able to recognize letters and sound, they are able to pronounce the words in a text. Guessing is another skill that pupils should obtain during comprehension of stories. It has been agreed that "guessing word meanings is widely known as a useful skill either for teacher or learners" (Clarke & Nation, 1980, p. 211). When pupils have acquired this skill, it will be easy for them to understand the text. Clarke & Nation (1980) also agree that guessing is one of the important skills that pupils should have in reading.
