Meaningful pictures help bridge the gap between prior and new learning of sight words by scaffolding in direct instruction of the language and vocabulary behind the sight word. Children with language delays, learning English as a second language, and children with limited vocabularies benefit from seeing a picture and hearing a sentence associated with the sight word. These picture cards contain all of the words from the Dolch third grade list. Each card contains the sight word at the top and a sentence using the sight word at the bottom. The Dolch word and sentence are illustrated for the child in a child-friendly picture that provides the context that children with language delays or differences need to develop their vocabulary and learn their sight words. This packet utilizes a meaning-based approach to teaching sight words. It can be used with children from third grades or beyond if they are struggling with third-grade sight words. Children with language delays or differences, from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and those from homes with limited language interactions or reading, will benefit from this product. If you have been teaching a code-based strategies approach to your students to help them read sight words and you are not having success, try this packet! General and special education teachers will find it useful as well as Speech Pathologists who believe in pulling academic content into their therapy or are looking for common core-aligned materials to use to work on formulating sentences with their students.
Here's what you will receive within this packet:
41 color cards depicting each Dolch third grade word, picture, and sentence,
41 black and white cards with only the Dolch third grade word.
41 black and white cards depicting only the Dolch third grade word.
