Your child will have their own sight word list folder that they will take home each night and return each day. This list is specific for your child and the goal of these lists are to increase your child’s fluency. After practicing these words, your child should be able to look at each word and read it within three seconds.
Please spend 5-10 minutes each day studying these words with your child. The list your child is currently studying will stay in their sight word folder and your child will be assessed every week to check for mastery and the words that your child can identify will be highlighted so please review any words your child might have missed. Here are some tips for studying the words.
1. As you study the list, vary the order of the words.
2. Get creative! Your child can use shaving cream, play dough, noodles, wet spaghetti, or any other item you can this of to create these words.
3. If your child has difficulty reading the words, the adult can read the sentence saying “blank” in place of the underlined word. Your child should be able to identify the word through context and by seeing the beginning and ending letters of the word.
4. Please go back and review previously mastered sight word lists.
Your child’s progress with these words will be monitored regularly so please return the folder to school every day. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. I appreciate your support!
