This resource includes the following pages:
Color and Number Words
Entering 1st Grade Words
Reading Street High Frequency Words
Directions for Sight Word Book:
At the beginning of each school year I make a copy of this booklet for each student (cover included). I make each page a different color to make it easier to find a certain page for students and myself..
I use these pages to assess students letter & sound recognitions; dolch sight words, red words (words that are not spelled like they sound, Project Read) and Reading Street high frequency words. Note: Our school has trimester that is why the dolch words are divided into three parts.
I send a copy of the page of words we are working on in student’s homework folders so they can practice with their parents at home. In the beginning of the year I send home the letter & sound recognition, color & number words, beginning 1st grade words, 1st trimester and Unit R words. I then send the other pages home when we begin to work on those words and units.
During the school year I star the words in student books that they have mastered. I have parent volunteers and/or room helpers work with students on these practice pages. We also get these books out in guided reading and whole group instruction to practice these skills and words.
I transfer student mastery of these skills and sight words on a my data forms for each individual student each marking period . The data forms are sent home with the student’s report card or discussed during parent/teacher conferences. (These forms can be found in my TPT store under the resource, First Grade Assessment Data Forms).
I hope you enjoy this resource and visit my store for other resources.
