COMPLETE SET OF MY READING MASTERY 1 WORD CARDS (all 7 sets)
Word Flashcards to supplement the Reading Mastery Program by McGraw/Hill
This monster set includes all 7 of my sight word sets from Reading Mastery 1. If you've purchased any of them singly from me in the past, DON'T purchase this one, or you will have repeats. This set does NOT include the Word Chunk cards, or the individual letter cards.
I developed these flashcards to supplement the Reading Mastery curriculum. Besides using them as regular flashcards, they can also be used to play Memory, Go Fish, or a variety of card games. I've also taped them to my classroom door for each child to read as they leave my room, taped them to the floor for a version of hopscotch, and taped them to the board and had the students “Smack It!” with a flyswatter when I said a word. Making a set for each student to take home is also handy. In addition, I've found it rewarding to label a section of the classroom with each child's name and let them tape each word under his/her name as it's mastered. Blowing them up to a full size sheet for a larger display IS possible, but (truth in advertising) the words do pixelate to a small degree; it stays completely readable.
I think it's a fairly common thing for teachers to observe the needs of their students and develop a variety of materials to meet those needs. This was my purpose when I developed these bookmarks. Because of the special orthography used in Reading Mastery, making supplemental materials was not an easy task. I chose a font that was somewhat similar, worked with it in a graphics program, and this was the end result.
About the program:
Reading Mastery is developed by McGraw-Hill and part of the SRA program. I have been teaching for 25 years now, and I can honestly say that I have never had a program work as well as this one. I used this program in a special education classroom, and I could not believe the difference it made. I have seen it work wonders, and would STRONGLY recommend it to anyone, teachers and parents alike. It was NOT developed specifically for special needs students, but works equally well for any child or adult of any ability.
