I thought I’d pop in a share a little bit about sight words in our classroom.
We have a list of 100 words to teach throughout the year. This summer I had spent time mapping out how we would teach the sight words the adoption introduces while also teaching color words, number words, and others from the Dolch list. That all changed when we were given the list of 100 words to teach. Some were in the adoption, most were on the report card, but most were going to need to be worked in.
This is what I came up with.
I am still missing some words, but 92 is pretty dern close to 100!
Each day we do flash cards in a powerpoint form. I just set it up to have 1 second between each slide. Each week we add our new words together, then flash through the whole set of words we have learned.
We also do sight words songs each day to practice our words of the week. Here is one of our favorites!!
Each week we create the books that go with our sight words for the week.
