This set of practice pages is designed to provide practice with Fry Sight Words 1-100. One word work sheet is included for each word.
This set includes the practice pages ONLY. The complete management set with flashcards, recording sheets, and practice pages is available in my store.
In creating this set of word work pages, I have intentionally not numbered the words or lists which allows you to introduce the words in any order that suits your class or the individual student.
Every word work page has the same basic activities. Activities include visual discrimination, determining vowels and consonants, tracing/writing the word, word configuration fill-ins, identifying the word, and sequencing the letters of the word (fill in the blank and cut-and-paste). The activities are geared toward creating a visual memory of the word thus building fluency and spelling skills. In order to reinforce visual memory, there are no misspelled or made up words used in the packet. (Studies have shown that seeing a word misspelled in print can confuse visual memory.) All of the words in the “circle the word” boxes are real and are similar to the target word in some way. The student must look at every letter to determine if it is the target word.
The sentences for the target words are not “easy” sentences. There are simple, compound and complex sentences. Statements, commands, exclamations, and questions are included. Often, the target word (or one that looks similar) occurs more than once in the sentence making it necessary for the student to look at the complete sentence, not just find the word and quit. Some of the sentences will lend themselves to extension activities.
“The boy likes the little brown dog.” may be extended by asking the student to draw a picture that matches the words. (adjectives)
“What happens when oil and water are mixed?” can be the basis of predictions and experiments.
