Extra Practice for Struggling Readers - High-Frequency Words
Often called "sight words" because readers need to know them at a glance, high-frequency words can prove challenging for students. This resource offers dozens of practice pages that give older struggling readers multiple opportunities to review and really learn common tricky words--such as which, listen, enough, and answer--that aren't easily decodable and don't follow the usual sound-spelling relationships. When students can identify high-frequency words quickly and accurately, their reading fluency increases, and their reading comprehension improves. With repeated practice, students develop automatic recognition of dozens and dozens of words and become more fluent readers.
Featuring over 24 lessons, each of these focused-skill Scholastic workbooks builds and hones specific reading skills. Though the series targets “struggling readers,” each will benefit any reader as they develop skills. Each book introduces the specified concept, provides examples, then follows with exercises to practice concepts. Books provide brief teaching tips and answers. Students who need reinforcement with CVC and digraph words will benefit from the Phonics workbook. High-Frequency Words works through 240 essential sight words. Word Families teach prefixes and suffixes, Latin and Greek roots, plurals and more. Nonreproducible, 80 pgs, pb. ~Ruth
