In this download you will find 1 single-paged student reader called, "The Valentine", a version for the student to take home, along with sight word flash cards and picture cards to go along with the reader.
This student reader is used to reinforce the sight words my, the, is, it, for, no, can, and you. It is used to promote concept of word and use of picture cues to help read unknown words.
I use these student readers in my small groups. I introduce a reader by writing the sentences on sentence strips and then place them in a pocket chart, displayed with the picture cards. The students use a fun pointer to practice concept of word as they point to each word and read the story. The reader is then printed out and kept in the student' own personal folders (the ones with the brads on the inside), along with the flash cards for the students to practice and reread.
I also randomly listed the sight words reinforced in the reader on the bottom of the page. After the students complete the reading of the story, they then go down and read the words in isolation.
I hope you enjoy this!
