PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Get all 4 of the Popcorn Word Packets! Create small books with multiple ways for children to practice high frequency words (sometimes referred to as sight words) these are the words that keep popping up in reading and writing. Each booklet allows a student to:

- Practice the shape of the word
- Trace the letters of the word with guided and independent practice
- Visually discriminate the word from words that are similar
- Identify the word in reading
- Write the word through dictation of a sentence

Practice with a flashcard that includes the shape, a visual clue for the word and a phrase or sentence that has decodable and other high frequency words along with the word being practiced. Therefore, allowing children to practice the word in real reading.

Teachers can assign one or more of the pages to students and decide how many words individual students should practice. This allows for differentiation based upon student needs and capabilities. The booklets make a great center activity. Once they are introduced children can practice independently without new directions for each book.

The packets of words are based upon Dr. Edward Fry�s Research on high frequency words. The first 100 words on Dr. Fry�s List comprise approximately half of all written material. Each packet contains 25 words, in order of frequency. All four packets practice the first 100 words.

Packet #1 Words 1-25
Packet #2 Words 26-50
Packet #3 Words 51-75
Packet #4 Words 76-100

Each word has 6 practice sheets that can be made into a small booklet by cutting along the dotted lines. Booklets can be placed in baggies for further practice and words added as previous words are mastered. The last page of each booklet acts as a flashcard that children can take home. The list on the back of the packet can be duplicated and teachers can encourage children to highlight the words on the list when the child can both read the word in a sentence and write the word when dictated in a sentence. In this way, children will be practicing and mastering the beginning words before more words are added. Each child can move at their own pace and teachers can ensure mastery of the most frequent words in reading and writing.
