This engaging sticker book is designed to be used as a fun way for first graders to practice their high-frequency words. I used it last year, and my kiddos would BEG to get a chance to read their words to me!
The set includes six different covers (covers all have space at the bottom for a name to be written) as well as some blank templates in case your word lists differ from mine. My lists are from Reading Street first grade common core edition.
I plan on cutting the lists apart and stapling them together creating one book for each unit, six books in all for each child. (Space has been provided at the top and left edge for staples.)
As I assess them on the words, if they get a word correct, I highlight the heart near that word. If they get the word wrong, I leave the heart white. The students then place stickers on each highlighted heart. Those tiny stickers that are for incentive charts work really well for this, and the kids love choosing what kind of sticker to use for each word.
Parents and teachers can easily tell which words need more practice because they won't yet have a sticker. Children can keep the sticker book in the take-home folders or in their book boxes for review.
I keep them in a basket and send them home only when they are complete. I send a different note home with the words that need to be practiced.
I hope you enjoy the sticker book!
