Sight Words: First Grade (Stick Kids Workbooks)
(description by publisher - stay tuned for our own!) Sight words are those words that readers should instantly recognize. They are among a group of high-frequency words that compose 75% of the words that children encounter in text and use in their own writing on a daily basis. Many of these sight words do not follow standard phonics rules or spelling patterns, which makes them difficult for early readers to recognize and sound out. Children just learning to read can build both fluency and comprehension skills when they learn to read and write basic sight word vocabulary quickly and automatically.Upon your child's completion of each activity, use the provided incentive chart and stickers to track progress and celebrate your child's success.Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids® Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun. Each 56-page book features full-color activities, a list of the skills, and an explanation of why those skills are important for development. Also included are helpful tips, an answer key, a handy tracking sheet, stickers for acknowledging achievements, and appearances by the lovable Stick Kids!These right-sized (7" x 9") skill practice workbooks are perfect for use at school, or as entertaining activities on the go. Tuck them into a backpack, purse, or travel bag. Great for school breaks, vacations, and year-long practice.SKILLS Sight word recognition Reading and writing of 100 sight words Visual discrimination Vocabulary development Following directions Beginning reading and writing skillsHOW YOU CAN HELP SUPPORT LEARNING As each set of four sight words is introduced, write them on index cards for extra and frequent practice with your child.
