I have been looking for a better way to assess sight words and this is what I came up with....sight word folders. The sight word folder is a take home folder for the students to use for homework. All you need is this product and manila folders. This product includes a cover, the lists (I used the first 200 Seeing Stars words), and a signature page. You can edit all the pages. You may want to edit the lists using your own words.
The cover explains the directions to the parents. The students are to practice reading and spelling one list at a time. The parent should sign the signature page when the child is ready to test over the list. Then, have the student read and spell every word and put a sticker next to the list if the student gets all the words right. This will let the parents know to move on the next list.
