Who was this resource created for?
I am currently an 8th grade intensive services Special Educator. I teach ELA, Science, and Social Skills, to a small group of students with moderate to severe disabilities. I created this Read and Write Sight Word resource for students with intellectual disabilities, on a beginning reading level. I chose “want”, “to”, and “go” for this word study mini-unit because I wanted to tie together important sight words that teach how to express ‘want’ in daily life. I found with repetition, fading picture support, and most importantly, daily practice, these students found success with reading and writing the sight words highlighted in this lesson. This resource was beneficial for students with Intellectual Disabilities, including Down’s Syndrome. These exercises may also be beneficial practice for early English Language Learners and beginning readers.
What does this resource include?
-Two versions of the book, “I want to go”, there is one version with picture symbols, and there is a version where the students read and then draw their own illustrations.
-Trace, read, and write activity
-Circle the Sight words activity
-Color-by-Sight word activity
-Sight word search
