Welcome to reading2success designed to support parents, child care providers and teachers in coaching children to reading success. Best practices for toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary school students will be discussed, reviewed and demonstrated.
Sight Word Booklet, Activities and Demonstration Video - I used these booklets in class and provided them for parents to use at home. Sight words are irregularly spelled words that can't be sounded out and/or words that occur frequently in text and need to be recognized on sight.
Children are expected to know lists 1-6 by the end of first grade. If they master these lists early, have them continue with lists 7-11. Learning sight words with automaticity will improve reading fluency and reading comprehension.
(1) Print the 6 pages (2) Fold each page on the folded line (right side fold) (3) place pages in order starting with the cover and staple them together on the left side, (4) place decorative tape over the staples
