5 day sample lesson ideas to incorporate into sight word instruction
This sight word instruction resource is meant to add to current sight word instruction. We recommend using in conjunction with guided reading. We hope to add more products to this program soon. Some products may include sight word fluency sentences, additional homework, word work, literacy center activities, and hands-on materials. We thank you for purchasing our product. This program has been a “work in progress” for several years. We developed this program as a way to teach the 220 dolch words that our district required. It has been tweaked over the years and we are so happy to be able to share this one-of-a-kind resource with the TPT community!
Thank you again! Please let us know if you have additional questions.
