Clip to ScrapBook #2

My favorite thing to do is sight word sentence work. I do it in 4 steps.
  1. Each child dictates a sentence with one or two, etc. sight words. I give them a sentence frame. This week we did "I can..." We do this whole group over the course of a few days and they help me spell words, I talk about spaces, capitals, etc.
  2. The kids come up and lead the group in reading "their" sentence. Again, over the course of a few days.
  3. I cut the sentences up. Each child gets their sentence and they have to put it back together and then they illustrate it.
  4. I make a class book. They love reading them!
What I love about this is that it reinforces reading and spelling the words, as well as all of those wonderful things like sounding out, talking about sentence mechanics, sentence structure, drawing pictures that go with your sentence, etc. At the end of the year I take apart the class books and each child has their own book of sight word sentences that they get to keep.
