Reading & Spelling Sight Word and High Frequency Games Level III
This 39 page packet includes sight word spelling and reading games for the third 140 carefully selected Dolch, Fry, and Johnson high frequency words.
Every ESL and native English writer “must know” these words to read fluently and with increased comprehension. Mastering these sight words improves spelling convention scores in writing, and increases student confidence and motivation to write.
These reproducible games:
-take minutes to make, are easy to store, and are simple to use.
-do not need monitoring with simple rules and high student motivation.
-are child-centered and increase convention scores by assuring students master spelling of these challenging English high frequency words.
-can be used as center, small group, partner, rainy day recess, and family activities
-include quick assessment lists for differentiated instruction, monitoring progress, and conferencing.
-include homework spelling sheets for continued practice at home and family involvement.
May be used with homogeneous groups. Although a student cannot win without correctly reading and spelling each word, the best reader or speller does not always cross the finish line first, which keeps motivation high.
The Spelling and Reading High Frequency Sight Words Game boards III progress sequentially through the third 140 Dolch, Johnson and Fry word combinations. Determination of word order comes from difficulty of spelling combined with frequency of use. Students progressively master game board 29 in reading, then move on to spelling the same words with the same words from board 29 on spelling cards. It is highly recommended that High Frequency Sight Word Reading Games are played prior to the Spelling games. When reading is perfected, students learn to spell these same words using the spelling board game.
Students learn from each other. Student attention is very high because they must listen for errors in the reading of their friends, and listen to hear how to say a word correctly. If a student misspells a word, the other player reads the spelling to her/him, but he/she loses their turn. The spelling cards and reading boards contain each word at least 2 times in each game. There are multiple chances to hear, read, and say the words correctly. These activities offer students a chance to independently learn all their “word wall” words while you have guided reading groups or other literacy activities. It can be used as a “can do” or “must do” activity during literacy time.
The Complete High Frequency Sight Word Program includes 422 high frequency words in English for students grades k-8. The same program is available in Spanish for bilingual classes.
