Sight words are those words that readers should instantly recognize. They are among a group of high frequency words that compose 75% of the words that children encounter in text and use in their own writing on a daily basis. Many of these sight words do not follow standard phonics rules or spelling patterns, which makes them difficult for early readers to recognize and sound out. The word searches in this book will provide your child with repeated exposure to grade-level-appropriate sight words and vocabulary. Research shows that repetition is essential for the brain to learn and recall information. Automatic recognition of these words helps develop reading fluency and build a strong foundation in reading comprehension, an important skill for academic success. In addition, solving word search puzzles provides fun spelling practice.
Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun. Each 56-page book features full-color activities, a list of the skills, and an explanation of why those skills are important for development. Also included are helpful tips, an answer key, a handy tracking sheet, and appearances by the lovable Stick Kids!
