How does this work in my classroom?
First, I read the sight word class book as a introduction. We review our reading strategies, identify and highlight new sight words, and decode new words together. Then, I hand out the readers individually to students and invite them to highlight the sight words, color the pictures, and practice reading each page. While students are doing that individually, I call small groups to join me to read their books aloud. This allows me to work with different groups on different levels.
