Clip to ScrapBook #2

I teach Kindergarten and do not teach from a sight word list. Instead I teach them to decode. When we hit an irregular word like the or said or an r-controlled vowel, I tell them they haven't learned those rules yet and just tell them the word. So I do teach them but in context. I count on repeated organic exposure for those irregular high frequency words.
