Perfect Way to Teach Sight Word Fluency!

Sight Words
Dolch, Fry's, district required words...AHH!  There are so many!
There is finally a way to teach them to all types of students!
(Sometimes the most growth is from ESL students!)

In December two years ago, I had an extremely high number of students who didn't know their Quarters 1 & 2 sight words.  
This was not okay!!  
I needed a new strategy that taught the sight words in context and could be tailored to each student.  

Each student that needed extra help has a binder with an individualized cover!
(Some of my colleagues love this so much they do it with their whole class!)

Inside their binders are pages with all their sight words listed, a color sheet, checklist, and graph!
(This is great to show parents at conferences!)

Each student also has the current quarters sight word fluency sheet!
This is where the magic happens!
The word is used in context with a sentence!!!
This greatly helps the kiddos who can read a word on a card but can't transfer it to a book.  Or the student that finds memorizing sight words, challenging.
If we ever ran out of time, the kiddos would remind me to do a page from our Sight Word Binders!
I ended the year will ALL (praise God) passing all first grade words.  My district has 153 required!

Here is the exciting part for teachers!
It's editable!
Enter student names...once!
Enter student scores...once!
"Wow!! This is AMAZING! I love the visuals and sentence structure for struggling readers and ELL students! Thank you for making it editable so I can add my own words!"

  5. I love this set. You have put a lot of work into this! I have one suggestion. . .On your rafflecopter, you didn't put the live link in for your TPT store. It might turn people away if they don't have the link right there for them to click on. It takes a few more steps, but I did find your store and became a new follower.
