Dolch Basic Sight Word Practice for Automaticity
Many of us have students who stumble over high-frequency sight words that need to be instantly recognized, and we seek ways to help them gain this automatic word recognition. We also have students who are motivated by the opportunity to work on a computer. In this resource, I offer a digital presentation of the Dolch sight words in a timed-display manner that may motivate some students, offering a challenging, fast-paced rehearsal of the words in a digital flash card manner. When paired with connected, meaningful reading activities for comprehension, these digital flash cards may offer students an efficient path toward automatic recognition of common sight words.
