Have your students learn to recognize and read the Dolch First Grade Sight Words in context. When I want my students to master the Dolch First Grade Sight Words, I use flash cards for the individual words. However, I also want them to be able to recognize and read the words in context and not just in isolation. In order to facilitate this, I have created 41 sentences, one for each of the Dolch First Grade Sight Words. These sentences allow students to practice reading the words in the context of a sentence. Each set has pictures for some of the words contained in the sentence to help students with their decoding.
I have each of my classroom sets photocopied, double-sided (you can also single-side if you want to)onto manila tag, and held together by a loose-leaf ring, which allows me to mix up the order of the sentences as students become familiar with them. Each 8 ½ x 11 set of Dolch First Grade Sight Words and Sentences creates four individual sets when cut up. The size of these sets is great for easy handling by students. My students quite readily grab a set off a hook on the wall and read through them in their spare time.
