The first step for beginning readers is learning those high frequency sight words we see so often. What better way to ensure recognition with a sight word sentence assessment. This tool takes it a step further than just reading flash cards in isolation - it gets students reading; this builds confidence. Students love reading these sentences accompanied by fun, and easy to recognize, pictures. Students will also be intrinsically motivated as they see their word recognition increase after three assessments. In addition, this tool can be used during an independent reading literature center for those students who are not quite ready for books.
