Tracking skills are an early print concept. This skill requires children to move their fingers (and eyes) from left to right as a word is touched and read. Tracking print also requires a "return sweep" back to the left side of the page and then moving eyes and a finger down to the next row of print.
These are developmental picture/word tracking sheets. They could be used with your RTI instructional programs for children that have shown evidence of weak concepts of print. They are designed for one-on-one and small group instruction.
Students begin by tracking pictures instead of words. They gradually progress to tracking words. There are a total of 18 tracking sheets. There are 9 tracking sheets which print with BLACK ink. There are 9 additional tracking sheets that print with COLOR ink. The COLOR ink tracking sheets are identical to the BLACK ink sheets. Picture/word cards are included to review the picture names prior to beginning a tracking session.
If you teach kindergarten in the state of Virginia, this resource will help your students achieve mastery for the 2010 standards for K.5-C and K.5-D. That is, "Distinguish between print and pictures." and "Follow words from left to right and from top to bottom on a printed page."
