I created this resource with specific students from my middle school intensive needs class in mind. The two students, one with an intellectual disability and one with Down’s Syndrome, both know their letter sounds but have not had success decoding words. One of the students was only writing in letter strings and the other had very few words that he could write independently.
After some research, I decided to create weekly sight word lessons that include repetition, manipulation, and reading and writing with picture support. I chose the Edmark Sight word list level one because it has functional words necessary for functional reading.
This resource is repetitive, tactile, and engaging. It is the second Sight Word Bundle in my store and follows up with some review words from the first resource which was Lesson 1. Check out my TpT store resources, Clothespin Word Creator Activity and Word Building Binder Activity (FREEBIE) for extension activities!
Since beginning this focused sight word work, the two students are making gains with reading. I hope that this resource is very useful for you.
This resource includes:
-10 page book with sight words and picture support
-8 Flashcards with visuals
-Writing activity with picture support, pre-planning worksheets, and writer's checklist
-Reading Comprehension Multiple Choice worksheet
-Sight Word Memory Game
-Spelling Practice Worksheet
-Fill-in the blanks worksheet
-Word Search worksheet
-Word Building activity
-Two running records for reading assessment, each comes with a page for students to read and for you to record what they read.
If you have any ideas of additional materials that you would like to see, please let me know! I would love your feedback!
When you leave feedback you earn TpT Credits for purchases on TpT. You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback on the items that you purchase. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example.
