Product Description
Spelling and Reading Word Practice Presentations {Dolch Word Edition}

This is a set of twenty-two presentations, created in Powerpoint, which have been saved into an editable, self-running format. The files are delivered to you in a zip format.

The presentations support these Common Core Standards:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.3c Read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does).
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.3g Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words.

The presentations can be used to review how to spell and read words. The teacher explains the expectations and starts the presentation. The kids do the rest! The presentation starts by stating the objective, which is to practice reading high frequency words accurately to support fluency and comprehension. It then animates a single word on each slide, one letter at a time. Students are expected to call out the letter names as each one appears. Once the word is completely spelled out, it will then “flash” and students can call out the word. The word will stay on the screen for a couple of seconds so the students can get a good visual impression of the word. To facilitate memory and brain connections, I ask my students stand up and to stomp their feet as they spell and give a clap while they read the word aloud. It could be used in small groups near a computer or with the whole class on an interactive whiteboard. Each presentation only lasts a few minutes, but it provides a fresh, student-centered approach to practicing these words correctly. I love that it is visual, auditory, and kinesthetic! There are lots of ways to mix it up for a little variety. Change the movements, the tone or volume of voices, or whatever you and your students can think up! I will also be offering this set of presentations with different backgrounds in my store.

The words in these particular presentations use the Dolch words in order of frequency. Each presentation has ten words, which are repeated three times in random order. The slideshow will stop on a page that lists all the words in the presentation for three minutes. The background on these files are the same on each presentation. You can see samples of the slides in the images. The files are fully editable if you would like to present different words or a different order. If you don't want to spend the time editing the presentations to suit your needs, there is a possibility I can create a custom listing using your word lists if you send them to me. Please contact me through my Teachers Pay Teachers store to check with me for pricing and a timeline if interested.

I purposely labeled the lists in the presentations by number rather than using the words pre-primer, primer, first grade, second grade, and third grade so that students don’t get preoccupied regarding grade level. I have placed a document with a word list and the corresponding presentation in the file for your convenience. You can also preview this list in the preview download file.

I have been using these presentations in my classroom for about five years now as a way for learners to practice sight words in a supervised, no fail manner. Before we read or complete any work that will ask us to use these words, we have a little practice session. It really helps to boost students’ ability to remember the words. And it just provides one more exposure to help them commit the words to memory.
