These printable sight word books each focus on one word, and allows children the opportunity to practice the word using different sensory experiences. These sight word books allow children to hear the word, see it in isolation and in context, has the children practice writing the word using different approaches.
When teaching new words, I like to follow this simple progression:
“Hear It” allows children to hear the word correctly, so they can practice it correctly.
On the “Hear It” page scan the QR code to listen to the word. This was created using Safe Share, so children will not be able to “surf the web.”
“Read It” is important for children to practice reading the word not only in isolation, but also in context.
On the “Read It” page children read the word. An option can be for children to highlight the word after they read it.
On the “Find It” page the children can either circle or highlight the word.
On the “Match It” page the children use page 11 to match the sentence to the picture. Children cut out the boxes on the doted line, fold on the solid line, match the picture to the sentence, glue on the “glue here” strip (page 6).
“Write It” is for children to practice writing the word. The more they practice the more automatic it will become.
On the “Color It” page, children decorate the word. This is a great activity for children to complete, to help them look at the shapes of the letter, before writing it.
On the “Make It” page children cut the letters apart on page 10. They then put the word back together and glue it down. In addition to this, you can provide children with magnetic letters to manipulate and then use page 10.
On the “Write It” page, children roll a dice and write the word with the corresponding color. It is a twist on the classic “rainbow words” and “word race.”
The words that are included are; a, and, away, big, blue, can, come, down, find, for, funny, go, help, here, I, in, is, it, jump, little, look, make, me, my, not, one, play, red, run, said, see, the, three, to, two, up, we, where, yellow, you
