The activities give practice for the words via for example tracing, writing/printing, coloring, BUBBLING IN the right or best answer, underlining, circling; and of course you can read or chant the words and sentences,finger-paint or clay model them etc. Simply look up at the thumbnail pictures for examples.
Near the end come assorted pictures which you are welcome to use for anything you want such as your own picture or chapter books, room ornaments, devising extra sheets for reading, writing, etc, etc. The words and text can be highlighted, cut-and-pasted, moved about. They include:

Finally there is a list of the Pre-K, K, 1st and 2nd grade sight words (Dolch). They are all in English except that for Pre-K, I’ve included a page with the English as well as Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Indonesian equivalents. If you don’t have any ESL/ELL youngsters yet, you may later. Anyway, it’s handy, and the idea is to help all the pre-K’s, and yes I also have a foreign language and ESL background including Pre-K.
