This is a must have writing resource that can be used all year long. This package includes first 140 sight words/cvc words, which are perfect for beginner writers (Kindergarten, Grade 1). Plus another 140 common words, each accompanied with a picture to help the students identify the words. You can use these in a couple of different ways. For example, categories such as seasons, community helpers, Valentines and colours, can be pulled out when needed. At the beginning of the school year I put out a ring with fall words at the writing centre. When we are done with them, they go on the word wall and we bring out another set for the writing centre. Words for numbers and shapes, I like to keep in the math centre all year long for easy access. Likewise, alphabet words, months and days of the week words can also be kept at the writing centre all year long for easy access. The following categorise are included in the file with following number of pages and words per category.
