These kindergarten sight word sentences are designed to help kids build confidence with early literacy skills. A high level of picture support is provided. Just one sight word is added on each page.
The 55 focus words in this pack are: I, like, my, see, can, the, go, a, to, we, you, look, at, big, is, with, for, he, she, little, have, here, are, and, play, said, put, come, they, this, help, in, me, on, up, down, away, jump, of, where, do, it, be, went, or, had, but, how, walk, am, now, so, into, an & very.
Because of the highly supportive format, these sight word sentences can be read during small group instruction, chorally with your whole class and/or in literacy centers.
These sentences are designed to be introduced at school, and then sent home for repeated practice. I encourage kids to color in a star each time they read the page at home, and to return each sheet to me when they complete it. I often offer a small treat when kids return these completed sheets. (If a child does not have the necessary support at home, he/she reads with a partner or parent volunteer at school. However, because these sheets are quick and straight-forward, most of my students do complete them at home.)
I have included 2 versions of the parent letter I send home with the first sheet. One of the letters asks for students to return the sheet for a small treat when all the stars are filled in. The other version shares information about the program without offering a treat for completed work.
Repeated reading of these passages helps students master these first sight words and also develop fluency in reading.
Supports the following Student Outcomes and related Common Core Standards:
