This bundle of common sight words is based on the new list of 500 words from Oxford University Press. The 4 sets of lists are compiled in order of frequency of use throughout the 50 levels/pages.
What this resource includes:
Set 1: Alien Attack - words 1 to 150
Set 2: Critter Chase - words 151 to 300
Set 3: Troll Trap - words 301 to 400
Set 4: Monster Mash - words 401 to 500
The 500 words have been divided into 4 sets. Each set is themed and contains either 10 or 15 ‘levels’ to complete it. Set 1 and 2 have 15 levels, each with 10 words - making each set a total of 150 words. Set 3 and 4 have 10 levels - each set with a total of 100 words. Each level is numbered and has a theme associated name eg. Alien Attack level 1: Quet. I have themed sets and named levels for students to be able to identify where they are at. Each theme starts again at level one. This has been done to eliminate students feeling disheartened at being at different levels.
How do I use this resource? The idea is that students are tested on each level and begin practicing at the level they are identified to be having trouble. Students move levels after they are able to identify all words for that level. When they finish their set they move on to the next one! (To test I print small versions of the pages, laminate and put on rings.)
Brand new students in Foundation/Reception/Kindergarten may all start together and work on these words as a weekly program. It is encouraged that students in older years can spell all of these words so teachers may decided to have students spell these words as well as identify them by sight. These contain Australian/British spelling.
Please make sure you have an appropriate program to unzip these files.
