This is a comprehensive Kindergarten sight word unit spans a semester. It includes a weekly list of words, flashcards, homework writing, review week sentences, book search recording sheet and grading sheet. Each part is a separate file. Below is a description of each file.
Sight Word List:
This file is a chart that describes which words will be taught each week. This is also how words are grouped for ALL of the other files.
Sight Word Flashcards:
Each page of flashcards was designed to be cut in half to save paper. In my classroom, I send these cards home on Monday for students to practice. (Not Included: On Monday, I have students write out each word on an index card that they keep at school to practice during free time.)
Sight Word Homework:
This homework sheet gives students practice tracing and writing the words for the week. Each page of homework was designed to be cut in half to save paper.
Sight Word Sentences:
During review weeks, I use these sentences as homework. Students are to find and circle their sight words in the sentences and then write them twice.
Sight Word Book Search:
This activity works best when paired up with an older student. In my classroom, each Kindergartener is paired up with a 4th Grader. The 4th Grader reads the story and then together they search for the sight words in the story while keeping a running tally. I have done this activity with only Kindergarten partners and it does still work.
Sight Word Grade Sheet:
This grade sheet is set-up for 22 students and has a column for each word in the unit. In my classroom, I test students on Friday. If they get the word correct, they get a check. If they get the word wrong, I highlight the box. During review weeks, I retest all of the words (or just the words since the last review.) If they get a highlighted word correct, they get a check in the box. If they still get the word wrong, they get a dash and if they get a word wrong that they previously had correct, I circle the checkmark.
