This product was inspired by my “Pre-K Class. Children at the young ages of 4-5 can begin learning sight words. How can this be done? By engaging students in fun, learning, and meaningful activities.
I as a Pre-K teacher know what my students need to succeed in kindergarten and it is my job to make sure I get them ready. When I first receive my students at the beginning of the school year they come in not knowing many letters, sounds, numbers, shapes…etc. There have been times I tell myself, how am I going to get them to read and write? Well, it’s a day to day process. It’s not something that happens over night.
Everyday when my students come in, we immediately begin out daily routine which is important in the early years. We begin our day by having the students draw in their journals. They have a different journal for each month of the school year. I transcribe for them by writing what they tell me about their drawings. It’s a daily “MUST DO” to go over letters, sounds, counting…etc. Once students have mastered all letters and sounds they are ready to read and write. By December to January my students are phonetically sounding out words to write in their journals. Here is where I begin to introduce sight words to my students.
I introduce 3-5 words a week or every two weeks. It depends on the class and what their needs are. I love to see the transformation of my students every year, it never gets old to me. This product is just one of the activities I engage my students in to help them learn the sight words.
I place these in sheet protectors and use them during “Learning Centers Time” and/or “Small Group Time.” These printable worksheets can also used in class as classwork or can be sent home for extra practice. At times parents request for extra resources to help their child at home.
You can choose to use these as you wish. I hope you and your class enjoy working on them.
Included in this product, each sight word has a page containing four activities
1. Color the circles with the sight word.
2. Circle the sight word.
3. Trace the sight word three times in three different colors.
4. Write the word.
