Below is the list of sight words your child needs to know. Most are from our reading series, Harcourt Trophies. *For teachers: Feel free to edit the pages to suit your needs. I have been working on making new worksheets based on email requests.* The best way to practice sight words is by finding them while reading. You may also use the flashcards provided in your child's STAR binder. Please remember to put the cards back when finished. I also provided a worksheet for each sight word. You will recognize them as homework sheets. If you would like your child to do the sheets again, feel free to print them out. I provided two options: .doc files (Microsoft Word) or .pdf (Adobe Acrobat Reader). If you need to use the Adobe Acrobat file, but do not have the program, please go here. The Adobe Reader is free! Below the list of sight words you will find a basic schedule for how I introduce sight words.
1. Show the word on the sentence strip.
2. Say new word and use it in a sentence.
3. Students chant the word ("Give me the letter "t" Give me the letter "h" Give me the letter "e" Word word is it? "The!"
4. Students learn the sight word song from HeidiSongs.com
Repeat steps above for next word.
*Please note that I am not the creator of these resources. The 5 day plan is by: Eileen Feldgus (I just added Heidisongs to the plan). Also, the sight word worksheets are made by a colleague- Mrs. Brandon. :-)
