Are you looking for a creative way to motivate your students to learn their sight words? This bundle reinforces learning the letters and sounds of the alphabet and reading Fry's sight words 1-600.
What is Key Words?
Key Words is a sight word program that has been implemented into classrooms for over 10 years! Level 1 assists students in learning the letters and sounds of the alphabet in a fun and exciting way. According to the common core reading foundational standard (RF1), students need to recognize and name upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet. According to the common core reading foundational standard (RF3), students need to recognize words by sight. I used Fry’s list of sight words to create levels 2-6. This program allows students to glide through each key word level at their own pace, learning sight words along the way. This is a differentiated program that students (and parents) love each year!
How this program works:
*A student takes home one set of keys
*The student cuts out the keys at home and learns the letters and sounds on each key
*Once all keys are mastered, the student brings all keys back to class
*The student is tested on his/her keys by an adult
*If the student knows all the letters and sounds on each key, he/she passes and receives the next set of keys
*Once all sets of keys are passed, the student will be assessed on all 26 letters and sounds (upper and lowercase) or words, depending on the level
*When a student passes level 1, he/she receives a Congratulations certificate and moves on to level 2, and so on
