My students need materials to help them manipulate their phonics skills and help them on the path to reading with use and immersion with sight words.
My kindergarten students want to be rock star readers. I want my students to be fully prepared for first grade; by being ahead in their language development. High frequency words are essential to fluent reading; and I want my students to have a strong language foundation for their futures.
My 26 kindergarten students are ornery and loud, but mostly they are adorable little scholars.
They are immensely engaged in their education and are HUNGRY to master the English Language. While the beginning of my time with these ESOL students was focused on letter name and sound recognition, it is now time to focus heavily on reading and paving the way for them to be strong, independent readers. My school is filled with English Language Learners, and when the younger students start with strong English skills, like recognizing and master sight words; they are guaranteeing a strong academic future.
These materials will add to the small supply of sight word related centers I have purchased on my own. I've made many more activities, but my students are craving more challenges and want to truly master their sight words to be totally ready for first grade! They also think my homemade centers are "really boring!" They are a colorful group for sure! These new materials and activities will help children practice isolating and manipulating sounds, making real and nonsense words, as well as mastering the high frequency words necessary for effective reading.
Kindergarten students need to master all letters and sounds, AND to effectively prepare them for first grade, they need to know the high frequency words that are found in all texts.
The sight word magnets will help with my instruction of sight words, and the alphabet boxes and turn and twist games will help students strengthen their phonics skills and help increase their confidence when encountering words they don't know; only making them stronger readers.
