*** THIS IS A PowerPoint FILE. You must have PowerPoint to play this, unless you convert it into a Google Slides file. ***
Teachers asked and I answered the call.
How can teachers teach and assess sight word recognition?
With this Digital PowerPoint presentation to use for assessment and then the teaching tool, afterwards. Great for typical learners, ELL students, as well as challenged learners, such as those attending Special Ed resource.
Here you have a digital PowerPoint reading assessment that consists of four parts:
- PPT slides of Fry Sight Words #101-125 for assessment (and practice, too!)
- PPT slides of Fry Sight Words #126-150 for assessment (and practice, too!)
- PPT slides of Fry Sight Words #151-175 for assessment (and practice, too!)
- PPT slides of Fry Sight Words #176-200 for assessment (and practice, too!)
How to use:
Simply display this PPT slide show on your computer and share the screen with students who are doing online learning from home. Click to advance to the next slide. Assess one student at a time. Use the assessment tracker forms that are included!
For teachers who are teaching in the classroom in-person, just open the file on a device in the classroom.
Benefits of my Digital Alphabet reading Assessment:
1) It's paperless! Nothing to share except your device. Kids at home get their alphabet reading assessments done!
Don't think that distance learning means that you can't assess students. Students at home can still be assessed, just like when you pull one student aside to do a running record. Mute everyone's mic except the one student that you are testing, and have the other students read a book or do a worksheet for a few minutes while you listen to your designated student, just like when you are doing a running record. Don't do all 100 Fry Sight Word assessments in one day, and don't try to assess the entire class in one day. Just start with one per day and build from there. You got this!! (There are letter houses for an alphabet Interactive Notebook in this Sort 'n' More phonics resource)
2) It's a whole-class reading activity, too!
How? These are slides. So, after your assessments are done, you can display the slides for the class as digital flashcards and teach your students just as you normally do with paper flashcards. Just click to advance to the next slide, or set the PPT to automatically run with about 3-5 seconds per slide.
3) Colored slide backgrounds are non-threatening. (Who is scared of words on pink or blue or green or purple backgrounds?!) Students will stay interested in finishing the slides, and not feel like they are being tested.
4) Some experts believe that colored backgrounds help dyslexic students see the shapes of the letters better, without letters bouncing around a white page.
5) This is a time saver with three words per slide, so teachers click through each group of 25 words in just 9 slides!
6) Assessment forms for tracking student reading progress are included!! I've got you covered!
7) Every slide is numbered with the Fry word #, so you know how far along you are and how far left you have. Instead of putting numbers next to the words, which might be extremely distracting to a child, the numbers are small and in the top left corner, for teacher use.
8) Bonus- A page of 6 Super-kid Brag Tags is included for you to give your kiddos after they read the letters. Simply copy onto card stock and cut them out.
How awesome is this!
