11 word families and 32 sight words are used to practice handwriting, spelling, and reading. The following word families are included in this book:
-at, -an, -ag, -og, -op, -in, -ig, -et, -ed, -ug, -un
It also covers the high frequency sight words listed below. Most of these words are from the Pre-Primer level.
my, I, can, go, in, see, the, look, run, is, funny, a, blue, little, down, big, away, yellow, red, for, make, it, to, play, like, black, ran, at, has, all, fall, fly
Word families are a great way to introduce both spelling and reading. High frequency sight words are also important.
Use the blank handwriting pages to quiz your students. Use the CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) or CCVC words to practice phonetic spelling.
You may also have your students practice spelling the sight words and the entire sentences from memory. Having students write the sentences from memory helps build grammar skills, such as capitalization and periods.
Encourage your students to create detailed, colorful drawings. Drawing builds creativity, imagination, and fine motor skills.
