Reading Street Common Core (2013) Grade 1 ~ High-Frequency Study Guides/Tests Units R-5 Supplement
**This product may be used in any primary grade classroom. You do not have to use the Scott Foresman Reading Street Common Core series to use these study sheets and tests. They work well with any reading series.
We all know how important it is for our students to learn high-frequency words in order to develop and maintain their reading skills. These High-Frequency Study Guides and Tests for Units R through 5 will help your students focus on the high-frequency words presented in each unit of the Reading Street Common Core Grade 1 reading series.
This download includes 35 HF word wall lists and 35 tests that correspond with those lists. The first list consists of HF words taken from Unit R, Weeks 1 & 2. The second list builds upon that list by adding the HF words from Unit R, Week 3. Each week the pattern continues by adding the next unit's HF words to the list. As new words are added, the same number of review words drop off the list in order to maintain 20 words per week. (Note: Tests 1, 2, and 3 have less than 20 words per test.)
This product is simple to use, and is very effective.
Every week the teacher sends a HF word wall list home with the child to keep at home and study during the week. (There is a line on the bottom of the page which allows you to write or stamp the test date before you run copies.) After a week’s time, the child simply reads aloud that same list of words (in random order on the test) to the teacher. (I have found it helpful to highlight the words that the students misread on the test so that parents are aware that the child needs more practice with those particular words.) After grading the tests, they may be sent home for parents to review with the child, sign, and return to the teacher.
I administer the tests during morning work and have had much success with that routine. You may find it best to administer the test during small groups or while the children are working at their literacy centers. The possibilities are endless!
