Learning sight words can be very challenging for little ones. “Ocean Words” make learning enjoyable and exciting. They also allow teachers to appropriately level the instruction to each student.
Based on the top 400 words of the Fry list, each ocean creature contains 10 words. The first creature, a walrus, has the first 10 words. The second creature has the next 10 and so on. The preview included shows the first 4 animals, so the first 40 sight words.
Each child starts on number one. Once they have learned how to read and spell all of the words, they move on to the next ocean creature. Some children will get through three in a year (that’s 30 words, amazing!!!) While others may get through as many as 30 (300 words, wow!) Each word is separated by a box, so even if they don’t get all of the words right, I let them color in the ones that they did get, giving them a sense of accomplishment. I allow the children to test whenever they feel ready, but that is up to you. You may want to select a specific day as your testing day.
