This is THE comprehensive, levelized high-frequency / sight words system designed to help your students become better readers and writers! It was developed by several first grade teachers who saw the need to better teach the high-frequency and tricky sight words to mastery. All the words come straight from the first 9 lists of Fry words - that is 225 words, with 21 of the harder words repeated, for a total of 246 words!
WHAT MAKES THIS SYSTEM DIFFERENT? The words are sorted to be easier in the beginning to help each child feel pride and success in passing the levels! (The first level, white words - are also what we call the '30 No-Excuse words' all first graders should know. Many of these words are repeated throughout the other levels). The lists are color-coded to help engage students.
Need to challenge those high students? After they read all TEN levels successfully, have them go back through and spell them all, and watch their writing improve right before your eyes!
This system includes:
-TEN levels of flash cards with cutting guidelines and imprinted color labels for easy sorting! The first list has 30 words; subsequent levels have 24 words each!
-TEN levels of take-home sheets with mini-flash cards for practice at home
-teacher recording sheets
-student progress incentive charts
-mini-sheets for recording students' spelling levels
Also included are some ideas and tips of how you can use it in the classroom. The best thing? Once you set up your system, it will last for years! My flash cards have been used for seven years and are still holding up well!
