I tutor students who need extra help. The purpose of these worksheets is to assist them in reading, reading comprehension, and thinking. The words that are missing are not any particular type of word. The words are given in a box at the top of each page. Students need to only choose the word from the box that makes the sentence sound right and make sense.
Often the answers are found in the previous sentences if students comprehend what they are reading and are thinking. Each separate page of sentences tells a story. All the pages revolve around the same basic story. It is necessary to do the pages in numerical order for each page to make sense.
I teach intensive phonics. The following sentences consist of only short vowel words and sight words. The intensive phonics sight words I use are fewer in number than other lists of sight words. The sight words are:
a, to, the, and, of, on, have, some, are, want, wants, for, find, too, any, there
I have two words that intensive phonics do not consider sight words, but were necessary for the flow of the sentences. These two words are:
Some blends are used in a few of the short vowel words. They are:
ck, sh, th, ch
Several of the words used are short vowel words with double consonants at the end of the word, or have two different consonants at the end, or use the letter s at the end. A few of the words are possessive.
There are no pictures to eliminate student guessing as much as possible. There are five worksheets in color and the same worksheets in black and white. An answer key is provided.
I hope these worksheets are of a help to you as you work with your students. There will be more sets of sentences coming that I will put in my store on Teachers Pay Teachers as I compile them.
