Sight Word Practice!
We all know that automaticity of sight words is the key for beginning readers! However, this only happens with the amount of interaction your students have with a learned word.
Selecting a sight word from a text and teaching it to your students doesn’t have to stop there. This product contains over 60 sight words that kids will encounter in texts from A-D (Fountas and Pinell) levels. Of course, there are always more words to learn and that is why I created an editable file that you can type in your own words. The templates are designed for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 letter words that you may want to add. I also included those same files in the PDF in case you just want to write, not type your additional words.
The following are the words included: a all am an and are at big but by can come did do down for get go going got had has have he here him his I in is it if like look me my no not on of off or play put said saw see she so that the they this to up was we went what when will with you
This product has the kids read the sight word three times and there is a handy finger pointing to each word. Next, the kids are to cut out the letter tiles and “Mix and Fix”, which is where the kids scramble the tiles and then put them in the correct order to spell the word. They are to do this three times and then “check off” that they did so in the boxes provided. From there the kids write the word three times and then glue their letter tiles onto the sheet. Lastly, since you have taken the word from the text you have taught them the kids then go on a word hunt to find out how many places in the book the word appears. You can use other books that you have previously taught them so that they can hunt in many places.
This would be ideal to demonstrate in small group, have at a literacy center or used as follow up work to your guided reading lesson.
Great for pre-k, kinders, early first graders, below level readers or anyone new to English!, although you would need to give meaning to each word since there is not a visual. :)
I would print these and keep them in a binder alphabetized so that you will have them at a moment’s notice!
Thanks for stopping by!
