Sight Words, CVC Words and tailored stories to practice! Comprehension Questions and a rubric for assessment all in one kit! This is a systematic guided reading program to help early and struggling readers get on their way! Even early readers can read with fluency and expression with my Early Reading Kit Series!
This is Book 1, the first in a series of 5 accumulative books.
This kit includes:
A suggested Teaching Schedule
5 x Sight Word pages = 40 Doltch sight words
10 x CVC Word Lists = 60 CVC words
5 x Stories – designed with only the sight words and CVC words in this kit
1 x Sentence Maker Sheet
Comprehension Questions for each story, Record Sheet and Answer Card
Reading Assessment Rubric – to assess, provide feedback and highlight teaching needs
In this kit, students do not learn sight words or cvc words in isolation, but have an opportunity to apply their knowledge with a fun traceable story every fortnight to practice their new reading skills. Early Reading Kit Book 1 is designed to help the early or struggling reader to have reading success early in their reading journey. This kit focuses on the most common use of the vowel “o”. I’ve included a Reading Assessment Rubric to assist you locate where your student needs more teaching focus whether it be accuracy, expression, fluency or comprehension.
This kit may be reproduced for ONE CLASS SET ONLY. Please purchase additional licences for extra classes.
You can use this kit however you like. Here is one idea:
Students can have a take home folder to learn sight words each week as well as reinforcing these daily in your classroom English program. The CVC words can be taught in class. They need to be taught to blend the sounds together. The pages I have designed will reinforce letter formation using the Queensland Beginner’s Alphabet. These pages may be sent home for homework. Alternatively, these can be completed in class. Children need to make small sentences using their weekly sight words and CVC words. As the weeks accumulate, they will have more word choices.
With consistent practice, by the end of 10 weeks, your students will have learnt 40 sight words, 60 CVC words and will be able to read 5 stories. Important reading skills are also practiced, not just phonics and sight words. Children become real readers and comprehenders of early text very early in their reading journey.
Happy Reading! Anita
