Teaching and learning high frequency words doesn't have to be boring when teaching and learning Rainbow Words! This 72-page package has everything you need to set up the teaching and learning of 200 high frequency words in your primary classroom. Teaching high frequency words is a Common Core standard in K and 1st grade, but this system is ideal as a 2nd and/or 3rd grade sight word intervention and progress monitoring system. Check out the Preview to see all there is in this comprehensive year-long program...you will need nothing else to teach, assess and track high frequency words learning in your classroom. This package includes the following:

-200 Large Word Cards (10 PPTs per RW color - print options include 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, or 9 words per page)
-10 Small Rainbow Words Sheets for Small Word Rings (one per RW color)
-10 Word Check Sheets for Assessment Documentation (one per RW color)
-10 Student "Looks-At" Word Lists (one per RW color)

Please note: This word list is an adaptation of the 100 Most Frequent Words in Books for Beginning Readers by Bodrova and Semenov and Fry’s Instant Words.

This package is a large file size, so I have compressed it into a .zip file. On page 5 of the Preview, I have included step by step directions for HOW-TO unzip zipped files. If you have a Mac, click on the apple icon in the upper right corner of page 4.

This is an amazing system and I am positive you will not be disappointed. Thank you for looking and/or purchasing! I appreciate your business! After you purchase, open, and dig in, leave me feedback on the Comments and Ratings tab to earn your TpT credits.

Please also check out my Rainbow Phrases System, which is intended to be used after students have learned all rainbow words.

Thank You!
