Sight words, also known as high-frequency words, are the words that are used most often in reading and writing. These words account for up to 75 percent of the words used in children’s printed material. Sight words don’t follow basic phonic principles and, as children are in the early stages of developing their decoding skills, sight words must be learned by sight or memorized. The Sight Word Activity Books include a variety of fun and engaging activities that will help your students master their sight words.
Why is it important to teach sight words?
Teaching sight words not only help a student read more fluently but also helps them develop confidence and reading comprehension. When a student knows their sight words, they do not have to focus on deciphering every word in the text they are reading. By eliminating the need for stopping and deciphering every word, your student will be able to focus on the rest of the text. This will increase their reading comprehension and build their confidence to master reading.
What are the Sight Words Activity Books?
Teaching your students to recognize, read, and write pre-primer sight words is easy with these Sight Word Activity Books. The sight word booklets are designed to follow a predictable format. Once the activities have been introduced to students, they are able to complete them independently. This makes the sight word booklets ideal for literacy centers and distance learning.
There are 40 sight word booklets (one for each word on the pre-primer sight word list):
