BUNDLE – Pack 1 & 2
It’s truly amazing to see how quickly children can learn sight words by making their own books. Only the sight words are used in the books and pictures are used for all other words. I created and laminated simple books for the Book Corner and then encouraged my pupils to make their own in the Literacy Center. I have included some capital letters so that children become aware that capitals are used at the beginning of sentences. So often children learn sight words but become confused when they see the same word written with a capital letter.
