Sight Word Without Distractions is a sight word reading program designed to be accessible to students of all learning
strengths. My youngest child, five, has a chromozone deletion, autism and is mostly non verbal. He loves books but gets lost in the pictures. I created this program to teach him to read. This program is designed to simplify the sight word process by empowering students with mega focus ability- all they see is a black screen and the word in white, no pictures. For students who have trouble with pacing and need to know how many cards they have to do, each slide has a simple color circle that helps track where they are. At the end of each set of five cards is a musical repeat sign, clickable, which repeats the set. Words are presented in groups of five. Students practice the same group of words for six days in a row, and then take a rest day. After five groups of words are presented, students do a set of reviews for 1 day each. Printable assessments are included for teacher use. At the end of each section, supplemental phrases and sentences help students understand the flow of reading from left to right and put the words in context. Most exciting is a set of screens that are double sided flashcards. Printing on both sides of the paper produces a set of the words in the program that can be used by parents to practice at home, each flashcard has a group number for easy sorting and cutting guide lines for quick production, unlimited prints. This program contains four sections of words, 20 total groups, with reviews, assessments, flashcards, and sentences. The 442 slides are designed to last for five months, at the end of which they will be fluent in the 65 presented words. This is a sight memory approach, based on a limited number of phonics per group. I recommend that the learner know at least a few phonics before starting this program.
