PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

We all need to teach sight words in first grade, right? We’ve been using the Dolch words the last several years to target the order of frequency. This year, we realized that the Fry Word Lists are an updated version of word frequency and difficulty. When we analyzed both lists, we noticed that many of the Dolch and Fry words overlapped. The order of words was a little different. This packet is based on the first 140 Fry words, but each group of five has one Dolch word that was not included in the early Fry lists. This way, you get the best of both worlds. The order of frequency according to Fry, while making sure no Dolch words in the first 150 words are forgotten. This packet has three different types of exercises to help improve sight word knowledge, reading, and writing. There are 35 pages for 2 of the different exercises and one blank that can be used over and over again with all of the different sight words or even your word wall! Take a look!


Exercise #1 – Sight Word Graphing/Writing Exercises
There is a group of mixed up words at the top in different fonts. Students look for the first word on the list and circle it as many times as they find it. Next, they write the words on the grid as many times as they found it above. They can write how many times they found it also underneath. They do this for each word on the grid. Below the grid are sentences that contain some or all of the words. Students can read the sentences, trace over them and the rewrite them underneath on the lines provided. The early pages only have one sentence, but as they progress, there are two sentences to read, trace, and write. On one practice sheet, the students read each word at least ten times and write each between four and five times. (And they are having fun doing it!) This is also great handwriting practice!

Exercise #2 – Trace and Write the words
We know that one important way for students to retain sight words is to write them. On this page, students trace each word, 2, 3, 4, or 5 times and then write the words again on the line underneath. It’s great independent practice. Each page is marked on the upper right hand corner to let you know what week the words correspond to. The list is at the end of this file. They also correlate to the graphing pages.

Example #3 – Sight Word Blank
This exercise is 2 pages and can be doublesided. The student is given the choice of 4 of the words they would like to practice. They write each word 4 times and then use it in a sentence. You can use this with the words of the week or with just your word wall. It’s another great independent practice of sight words.

Example #4 – Sight Word Fluency Grids
There are also Sight Word Fluency Grids. They are cumulative in nature. There are 35 different versions; one for each week that correlates to all of the other pages. Each week the new words are added in more than one time. The grids start off small and grow as the students progress through the weeks. Each week new words are added in and some are taken out. They are continually practicing the words throughout the year. This way you know they keep the words as they go along. There is also a line at the bottom for the student/parent/teacher to keep track of words that are tricky for them. This will help to focus the student on words they need more help with.

Example 5 – Cumulative Assessments
There are also nine different cumulative assessments. There are two different copies of each assessment; A teacher copy for notetaking and a student copy of the words with less visual clutter. The assessments are set up by weeks in the same order as all of the other materials. They are clearly marked with what weeks are included in the test. Basically, there is an assessment every four weeks. The previous weeks stay on the grid to make sure students are really retaining the words. After the first four assessments, there are 15 weeks of words on each assessment. Ten of those weeks, students will have had a great deal of practice. The last four rows are the new words.
