Sight words recognition

Clip to ScrapBook #5

We share 4-5 "high frequency" words each week in first grade. Most cannot be decoded and have to be recognized by sight.

Kids give oral sentences for each word in a brief mini lesson. We clap, snap or cheerleader spelling of each word.

Then they find the words in their personal dictionary booklets and highlight in orange crayon. They have the words printed on a strip to be able to do this. Next, they cut apart the words and glue on an index card. They play a memory game with a partner, take cards home for practice.

We look and find sight words in reading selections.

I also scribe a brief sentence on word cards for my special needs or struggling kids. Reading in context is the goal and this helps.

Each week, two of the words are required spelling words.
