About this book:
This book contains a collection of Grade 1 Dolch sight word reading strips and a writing center intended to be used with children in Kindergarten (Prep) and Grade 1.
Directions for use:
The Grade 1 sight word reading strips in this packet are ordered so that each new strip builds on the sight words and vocabulary learnt in the previous strips. For this reason, it is recommended that you introduce the sight words in the order that they are presented in this book. New vocabulary (words that are not sight words) accompanied by an image appear only once on the strip they are first introduced. It is hoped that, with repeated reading, children will quickly learn to sound out, blend and read CVC words independently.
The writing center included in this unit is intended for use as a collaborative classroom or reading group project.
Print out a second set of strips and hand out one strip to each child along with a blank writing page. Children glue the strip in the space provided, copy the phrase or sentence on the handwriting lines and then draw a picture to illustrate the phrase or sentence. Collect the pages from each child and bind them together to make a booklet for each sight word.
I have included a front cover in color or black and white that you may like to use for the sight word books. Write the focus sight word in the front box for easy recognition.
