Use these 15 sight word readers at the beginning of first grade, the end of kindergarten or as an intervention for RTI. According to Common Core, children must have a strong sight word knowledge to read and write effectively.
The books introduce and review sight words so children have repeated reading with words, each book building on the last.
The books are entirely black and white to save you money. This 230 page unit is perfecct for your students who need work with sight words.
To Use: Print the book and photocopy as many needed. Staple and cut in half. Introduce the book. Have kids use highlighters, highlighting tape or wikki stix on unknown words or sight word(s) introduced. Have students read the book at least 3 times with 1:1 correspondence. Afterwards, students write a sentence using the pattern of the book. Teacher writes it on a sentence strip and scrambles (directions on page 128) .Flashcards are also included. I punch a hole in the upper left hand corner and place them on a ring. Add words to the ring once they are introduced in the printable book.
Each book rely on patterns and picture clues while teaching sight words. Each book has two optional interactive pages. One where students unscramble sight word and glue into the book and another where students write in the sight word. Each book also has a page in which the story is scrambled up. Students cut out the sentences and place the strips in the correct order without using the book. This is a great way to work on retelling in the early levels!
