I am the WORST. BLOGGER. EVER.
BUT- I have been on a roll lately creating products for my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I set a goal at the start of 2017 that I would post at least two products a month. And I reached that goal tonight…with more to come in the next week or so! A big thanks to the two snow days we had this past week, and the one I now have tomorrow (5 day weekend!), I finished something I have been working on for a while. My Sight Word Practice Sets!
I am so excited about these, I just had to blog about them. These pages ask students to practice their sight words in a variety of ways. First, they box it to practice letter size/formation. Next, they simply write the word to get down the spelling and formation. Then, they use it in a sentence- practical application always helps my students to contextualize the word. Finally, they read a short (beginning-learner friendly, for the most part) passage, and find and circle the sight word as they read it.
I love these pages because they allow learners to write, use, and read the sight word, so they are practicing it in a variety of ways. The short passages also allow for reinforcement of other sight words while reading, phonics skills (blends, digraphs, silent e, vowel teams, etc.), and fluency practice!
So far, I have created my Ultimate Sight Word Bundle for Kindergarten (a compilation of 86 sight words, my most comprehensive set), as well as my Dolch Kindergarten Sight Word Set containing the 52 words on the Primer list. Up next are the first 100 Fry words!
If you want to try them out with your Kinders (or other learners!) before you buy, download my Freebie here.
Let me know what you think! I would love to hear your feedback or how they went for your students!
