Thinking about last weeks discussion question: How do you feel about teaching sight words at the preschool level? I began to think about developmentally appropriate ways to begin teaching words to students who are ready.
I have created a packet that you can upload here: http://community.educationworld.com/content/kindergarten-sight-word-packet It contains a few multisensory sight word center ideas using the first 100 words on Fry’s List. There is a sight word game to be played in a sand box and then each word letter by letter has been provided for you to print off to make letter cards for students to spell out sight words. Visit my blog (http://playfullearningbrooklyn.blogspot.com/2012/09/stuffed-animal-sight-word-center.html )for a way to use the cards with stuffed animals in a center. Please share ways you to teach sight words at the preschool level here: http://community.educationworld.com/content/sight-words-0?gid=NDYzMg==
I do believe each child, each class and each year is different. What worked last year may not work again. As teachers, we are constantly reflecting, learning and adjusting our plans to meet the needs of our students. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on teaching sight words.
