This pack contains EASY passages for EMERGENT READERS designed to help the students recognize sight words in texts and increase the students’ reading FLUENCY and CONFIDENCE.
The Sight Word Fluency Passages product uses the pre-primer dolch sight words and decodable words so that the students can read the sight words learned and sound out the other words. The sight words repeat over and over in different passages .The passages are not numbered so that you can pick the order you want.
*12 sight word passages
*sight word frames (to build the sight words)
*letters (to build the sight words)
The students will have to:
*Build the sight words using plastic letter tiles or the letters provided in this product
*Color the target sight words in the passage
*Read the passage several times until they can read it fluently
*Place a sticker in the space provided when the teacher decides that they can read the passage by themselves fluently.This is because I have students who need to practice reading it at home 3 times or 10 times,depends on the child,until they can read it with no support.The point is that if they learn to read the sight words in my passage they will probably read them in another text,too :).
*Illustrate the passage to SHOW COMPREHENSION
My students were very motivated to read the passage to get a sticker. They took the passage home and read it over and over to get the sticker.I usually gave them a sticker that said "excellent" or "great". They bragged about it to everybody!
This is also a GREAT TOOL for READING INTERVENTION !
