Climb the Sight Word Ladder to the Sky!
Simple Visual Organizer
Students and teachers track the first 100 FRY Sight Words with a motivational, easy to use organizer. Students can see progress and which words still need work.
Differentiation & Goal Setting Word Work
Students can self-select and monitor in a goal-setting exercise and teachers can see at a glance which words are in need of more work or a different learning strategy. These words are used in word work stations, and are completely individualized (Differentiation at its best!), so that each student will have their own set of words for study and spelling tests.
~Weekly checks (formative assessment) for Sight Word Fluency and Spelling. Students must demonstrate success 5 times as they 'Climb' the Ladder to the Sky. (eliminates the study and forget problem).
~Words and Lists (broken down into groups of ten) can be color-coded and Stars die-cut, or stars placed on student notebooks as they master a group of ten.
~Word Lists can be sent home periodically throughout the year showing progress and which words are left to master-parents can see exactly which words need help at home.
~ Lists can be made into Flash Cards or be pinned to a Word Wall.
