This sight word book is designed to help students master the 1st 100 Fry Words. On each page, ten words are presented in large print. Below the sight word, you will find a sentence using the word.
Pages from this sight word book can be read during small group instruction, chorally with your whole class and/or in literacy centers. I like to introduce this book at school and then send it home for repeated practice. Two versions are included.
• On pages 3 through 13, the words are presented in a bold, solid font. If you would like a large group of students to read this book chorally, I recommend using this version.
• On pages 14 – 24, you will find the same words and sentences with the sight words presented in an outline form. I like to use this version and have students carefully trace within the outline as we spell and say each word. (Colored pencils work well for this.) When students have repeated this process several times, they have a book full of “rainbow words” that they have created.
The sight word sentence cards can also be cut out and used as playing cards. My kids love a simple game that they play like the traditional card game of War. Players set their cards face down in a stack. Each player reads their card, with support as needed. The player whose sight word has the most letters wins the round. As in the traditional game, if the sight words have the same number of letters, it is a tie and the cards are left to be won on the next round of play.
Graphics are displayed in color, but also print well in black and white. I print one set in color to keep as a class book and then print student copies in black and white to save ink.
Please note: This is an updated version of the Fry Words in which the word am
is included instead of the word oil
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!
Sincerely, Anne Gardner (NBCT, Literacy)
