General | Latest Info

Hi Megan, I start with the very first set when I began teaching my kids to read. In my experience, my own kids are ready to memorize a few sight words and figure out words with pictures cues before they are ready to sound out words. I definitely recommend Reading Alphabet, which is by mother and a reading specialist. My sight word readers follow her curriculum, but they do advance much more quickly than hers do. Alongside readers, I begin sound activities and then Reading with word families as my kids are ready. My own children are usually read to start sounding out around age 4, but it while before it gets easy for them. I dont believe in starting reading with just decodable books because all that sounding out is laborious for young kids-also books often dont make sense because theyre use just words you can sound out. If you look through Emergent reader posts, youll see my tips for how to use them. Ask any more questions if you have any Hi Beth, Can you tell me which one youre having trouble with? When you click on the link to Readers, you need to go all way down to the end of the post to get readers. It will say something like get Readers here. And then has something underlined in green, like measure Mom Emergent Readers Set 1. Click on that and you should be able to print. Let me know if this helps and if you still need help! Thank you Anna for always sharing your amazing works, God bless you and your family. As you mention here, you are using MamasReading Alphabet curriculum, Is it good for preschooler? I have seen it but it is not that easy and kids who use it must now all alphbet before using it? I want to teach my students phonics and reading, Would you please advise me? Any ideas would be great as it said above, You can find post which shares each set of readers by clicking below. Sample page and new sight word are displayed on each image. When you get to post, scroll to the bottom to download set of Readers. This page does not have pdfs. Its just shows you all sets. If you click on the image you will get a post which tell about books. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the post to get the pdf. Hope this help! These are great! I just started going through Reading Alphabet with my almost 4 year old and 2. 5 yr old. Little brother always wants to do what big brother is doing. It is perfect because my little guy can learn his letters and sounds while big brother can learn beginner Reading. These readers with be perfect addition to our homeschool preschool.

Learning Disabilities in Reading

As most children master decoding skills, they naturally begin to become more efficient readers. Learning to recognize whole words by sight rather than by decoding each word is part of that process. Naturally, reading the whole word by sight rather than decoding letter-by-letter and sound-by-sound is a much more efficient and faster process. Most readers develop this ability naturally. However, students with learning disabilities in reading or dyslexia may have more difficulty developing this skill than non-disabled readers. Some students with learning disabilities and dyslexia learn better by using sight words from beginning. Your child's Reading teacher can typically tell you which strategies work best for your child. However, improving your child's ability to recognize sight words will likely help him with overall reading speed and accuracy as well as comprehension.


What Are Sight Words?

One research-base sight word activity to use as part of sight word instruction is reading racetrack. Although implemented one-on-one in Sullivan et al. Study, reading racetrack strategy has been modified here for implementation in peer pairs and small groups. Initially, set of sight words is taught with feedback, and then racetrack activity provide students practice with sight words to build automaticity. Children read as many sight words as they can in 1 minute. The Instructor then forms small groups of students who make similar errors, and provides direct instruction to each group. Children then practice reading sight words again and graph their results.

Several research-base Lists Of sight Words are available for teachers to use when planning instruction or for families to use when working with their children at home. One of the most popular lists is Edward Dolchs List of 220 basic sight Words. Commonly referred to as Dolch Words, this list was developed as an alternative to longer sight word lists of 500 or more Words. To be included on the list, word had to appear on all three popular Word Lists of early 1900s: Child Study Committee Of International Kindergarten Unions List Of 2 596 Words, Gates List Of vocabulary for primary grade children, Wheeler and Howells List Of 453 Words most frequently used in beginning readers publish from 1922 to 1929. The final Dolch List excludes all nouns, which are concrete and can easily referenced in illustrations, and includes an additional 27 words not found in the three lists mentioned above. Dolch cautions that his List Of Words DO not include all sight words children might need to learn in Elementary grades, but words represent the minimum that children should be able to read automatically. Another popular list of sight words is Edward Frys ' 1000 Instant Words. Frys List differs from Dolchs in a few key ways. First, Frys List has been revised several times. What originally began as List Of 1000 Words was condensed to List Of 300 Words and, most recently, reintroduced as a modified List Of 1000 Words. In comparison, Dolch Words have not been updated since they were first introduce. Second, longer list compiled by Fry is broader in scope. Among resources used to develop Fry List were Dolch Words and the American Heritage Word Frequency Book. As a result, Fry List includes nearly all of the Dolch Words, with 19 exceptions: other words contained on Frys List represent the most common words in the English language organized into groups of 100. Fry suggests that his List Of 1000 Instant Words be used as part of comprehensive literacy instruction provided to beginning readers in Elementary School as well as struggling readers in middle and high school.


Flash Words and Heart Words defined

For instructional purposes, High-Frequency Words can be divided into two categories: those that are phonetically decodable and those with irregular spellings. We call High-Frequency Words that are regularly spelt and thus decodable Flash Words. Although their spelling patterns are easily decode, Flash Words are used so frequently in reading and writing that students need to be able to read and spell them in Flash. Examples of Flash Words at cvc level are can, not, and do. Irregularly spelled words are called Heart Words because some part of word will have to be learnt by heart. Heart Words are also used so frequently that they need to be read and spelt automatically. Examples of Heart Words are: say, are, and where. Words on any High-Frequency Word List can easily be categorized into Flash Words and Heart Words. However, be caution that words may change categories. For example, early in phonics scope and sequence, see may be Heart Word because long e spelling patterns have been teach. When students learn that ee spells long e, see becomes Flash Word. Further, many of Heart Words can be categorized into words with similar spellings. This article categorizes Words on the Dolch List of 220 High Frequency Words 1. The method we use to categorize Words on the Dolch 220 List works with any High-Frequency Word List.


What Are Sight Words?

Sight words are not only frequently used in writing, they are also essential to conversational English. Because most of Dolch sight words are already in children's verbal vocabulary, learning to read them is simply a matter of connecting print words to oral version in their prior knowledge banks. Parents and teachers should make explicit connections between the printed version of a word and its sound. Pointing at word while repeating it is one way to do this. Also, adults should have children say sight words to help them become actively involved in their learning. This can be as simple as asking them to repeat sight word while writing it or as involve as having a child search through pile of sight words written on index cards or sentence strips to find the word that best completes the sentence you have write.
