Proficiency with sight words help students build speed and fluency when reading. Beginning readers approach reading in diverse ways. This product combines the need for efficiency in Dolch Words and the strategic use of recognizing how to effectively utilize onset and rimes.
The number of words per grade level is increased beyond the regular Dolch Words amount due to the inclusion of grade level words with onset and rimes. There is some overlap between the grades to secure some of the more difficult words. Certainly, there is meaningful use for this product in the general classroom for securing sight words and “helpful chunks.”
Grade level word charts are organized A-Z for grades Kindergarten to Third. Flashcards are also provided to implement suggested activities at home or in classroom centers. Helpful chunks are in bold and underlined in black on the word charts, while the helpful chunks on the flashcards are printed in green and underlined in green. This was done to help the child recognize the rime or chunk.
This product is designed to support the home-school connection to strengthen student skills. Five pages were designed to provide parents information on sight words, helpful chunks, and how to practice these skills to become automatic in use. Parents are also provided with several easy ways to engage their child in further practice at home.
I hope you find this purposeful and helpful for your students!
