I created these "Star Words" to go along with the reading series we use from Houghton Mifflin. This pack goes with the first book (2.1). See my store for the pack that goes with the second book (2.2 stories). There is a page for every story. Each page has 25 words that are found in the story. It has high frequency words and it promotes word recognition and fluency.
You can use these with the entire class or just your lower level students.
There are spaces below each word to place a stamp or sticker once the child has read the word quickly.
You can first give them a pretest on Monday, stamping or checking off the ones they can quickly read. Then allow them to take the lists home to practice. They can receive stamps every day for knowing the word or you can wait until Friday to check for words known. Provide treats or awards for students that can read the entire list by the end of the week.
