**This is the chapter slice "Sight Word Stories" from the full lesson plan "High-Frequency Sight Words"** Increase sight word recognition, vocabulary and comprehension as you help your students identify 130 sight words using real life pictures as an aid. Sight words are words that must become automatically recognized by the reader because they are often not pronounced or spelled in regular ways. We include the 100 high-frequency words that make almost 50 percent of everything that we read as adults having a bank of high frequency words is essential to building fluent reading skills. As students begin to read and build their sight word knowledge, they will build a bank of known vocabulary words that will aid them in beginning to read and spell. Boxes are used to help students come to understand that words can be recognized by the shapes of their letters, as they contain small, tall or hanging letters. Color graphic organizers and a comprehension quiz are included. All of our content meets the Common Core State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy.
