Dolch

Clip to ScrapBook #6

We use the Slossom SORT to use as progressive assessment however that test is pricey. If would suggest using the simple Dolch list. There are other high frequecy Fry etc. I would look at their daily high frequency to see how well it matched. This is just a share suggestion. If start on one list ( make a mini folder for the students to take home to study. When each person completes that list ( I usually cut the list in half 10 words at a time and highlight words needed for study) then they receive a sticker on a special name card (I always let the kids write their own names so they feel it is theirs plus you can tell alot from handwriting). That way when I get questioned about a student I can look up at the name plate and it gives me a reminder where that student is at. I have some kids that zoom through and others that struggle but this gives each child ownership in their learning and it is a good assessment tool is how they learn the words. "Do they still know the word that they called out on the list in context?" Hope this helps
