Building Sentences with Fry’s Sight Words is an interactive approach on practicing Fry’s sight words. Students will sequentially be introduced to five sight words per week. Dr. Edward B. Fry’s sight words are the most common words in our English language. They are ranked in order of frequency and should be taught in that order. This product includes the first 100 words.
Included in this resource are two different kinds of word cards. Some have pictures and some only have words. The cards that only have words are the “sight” words. The goal is for students to be able to recognize these words on “sight.” This is best done by using the words frequently, rather than just learning them as “flash cards.” Your students will be using these words to build sentences. As children build and read lots of sentences, they also will be building their store of sight words. The other cards have picture clues for easy identification; they are included so students will have more interesting words to use in their sentences.
How to use:
This is a differentiated learning activity. Depending on the needs of your individual learners the following activities can take place for 5-10 minutes. Remember to keep it simple and fun!
-Students can build their own creative sentences and then read them to a partner
-Teacher can dictate the suggested sentences for students to build
-Teacher can model building sentences and student can read sentences aloud
After students have built several sentences, have them write a sentence for each sight word. A sheet is included for each set of words.
