The Red Words Weekly Homework and Assessments Packet is based on the Layer One and Layer Two Red Words from the Orton Gillingham Phonics First Program for teaching high frequency words.
These supplemental materials include:
1.) A Curriculum Map - Breaks down the words into groups by week for the entire school year! During weeks 1-13, students practice reading the words before taking a reading assessment. Then, during weeks 15-27, students practice how to spell the words before taking a spelling assessment. A final end of the year assessment is also included for both reading and spelling the word lists.
2.) Letters to the Parents - Great for informing parents of what and when students are expected to master reading and spelling the red words, as well as which words students still need to practice after taking the assessments.
3.) Weekly Homework Packets - Each packet contains a list of words for the week, as well as 4 to 6 activities for students to complete independently at home.
4.) Assessments - Pre and Post Tests are included as well as as weekly reading assessment booklet and weekly spelling assessment booklet. These are great forms of documentation!
5.) Student Data Sheets - To help teachers track each students progress from the weekly assessments to the final assessments.
6.) Flash Cards - Great to have students cut out in class or at home for continued practice.
