Do your students have trouble reading sight words in context? Do you find yourself saying, "They know these words on flash cards or on their word lists, but why can't they read them when the words appear in text?" If that thought has crossed your mind, then you need to try sight word phrases!
This file contains sight word phrases for the first 25 words from the "100 Most Frequent Words for Beginning Readers" list. This list is commonly used in school districts, especially those who use the Tyner small group lessons. These words are also found in reading series, and the Fry or Dolche word lists.
Words included in the phrases-
the, in, a, is, and, on, to, you, I, it, of, said, can, for, my, but, all, we, are, up, at, with, me, they, he, have, out, that, one, big, go, was, like, what, not, do, then, this, no, too, she, went, see, will, so, some, down, little, come, get
This game can be used for small groups, Daily 5, center extensions, RtI, and differentiated instruction (higher or lower skill practice depending on your students). My Kindergarten students love this game. I hope your students enjoy it as well. Your students will learn their sight words and build fluency all while enjoying the game of BOOM! Have fun learning!
