Second Grade Sight Word Cards
Research shows that if a picture is imbedded in a word, students will remember it more easily. This is especially true of students who are dyslexic, are struggling readers or have short term memory difficulties. Over half of the 2nd sight words can be decoded easily and the students eventually will earn those words, but the remaining 24 words cannot be decoded or are difficult to remember, and these are the words I have targeted. My students have done SO well with these cards, and my parents have enjoyed using the cards at home. It takes the frustration out of the rote memorization and reduces the stress level of the student.
1. Large posters
2. Small flash cards- Print the words with the pictures on one side of the tag board, then print just the words on the other side, so students can slowly transition from the words with pictures to the words without pictures. Perfect to send home with students!
3. Power point- Use this as a daily warm up for whole group reading lessons and to introduce the sight words. You can also load the power point on student computers for the students to work on independently or in pairs during Word Work.
4. Power point with and without pictures of complete 2nd grade sight word list- This power point shows the word with the picture and then just the word on the very next slide to make the transition from pictures to just the words more seamless and natural. Also included are the rest of the sight words words that can be decoded. Vowel patterns and diagraphs are underlined to make decoding quicker.
5. Explanation of how to use the cards as well as the key words and sentences used to introduce the words.
