This is a complete systematic introduction of 40 of the first high frequency or sight words for early readers. This can be used in the classroom as well as for homeschool.
This sight word program consists of 8 lists with 5 words on each list. Beginning with list number one, the child is expected to memorize to read and/or write the five words on the list. When they can do that successfully, then they move onto list number 2. By the end of the program they will know 40 sight words.
This can be used in class, and there are also notes that can go home with parents to have them practice at home.
Parent letters: send these letters home along with a word list Sight Word list: can be cut up and used as flash cards
Assessment sheets: put these in a page protector to keep handy to test students on their lists
Score sheets: a one-page record for each child, to keep track of individual progress
Class record chart: a one-page chart to keep track of your whole class
In class activity: Suggested in class lesson to teach students how to practice their words with “Word Work”.
Word Building: Included are the eight sets of five word lists included in the Kindergarten program. The lists are printed in different colors to help prevent mix ups. Each list has a set of flash cards, and a set of the words with widely spaced letters that can be used to cut up the words and put them back together for word building practice.
This could be one of your word work tasks in your classroom, or could be included in the homework packet for take home work.
The lists could be printed on card stock and laminated, then cut up the words, so they can be used over and over.
