The program greatly improves reading fluency and opens the door out of phonetically controlled text, into the world of richer literature. This product includes an explicit instruction manual and 84 sight words, grouped according to shared features, printed with embedded mnemonic pictures drawn into and around the sight words on 7 8.5" x 11" sheets of colored card stock, as well as without the visual cues on 7 8.5" x 11" sheets of white card stock. After cutting, each word card is 1.5" x 4.25".
A critical piece of the Reading with TLC program, and a natural complement to the Lively Letters program, Sight Words You Can See is used as a part of, or supplement to, the regular education curriculum with students in grades K through 3, as well as an intervention program with students of all ages. Teachers use this program not only to build word identification skills and reading fluency, but also to easily train the spelling of some of the most frequently misspelled words. Sight Words You Can See facilitates acquisition of the most difficult sight words, those that have phonetically irregular or infrequent spelling patterns. A missing link in many reading programs, this unique product utilizes imagery, humorous stories, and mnemonics to train the reading and spelling of those "tricky" sight words that do not follow the typical rules of phonics, such as "have," "come," "who," and "what" by linking the irregular spelling patterns to the meanings and pronunciations of the words.
The included easy-to-follow manual contains explicit instructions on introducing and drilling the sight words, pre- and post-test sheets, sentence level and word dictation activities, and reproducible dialogue story boxes for simplified sight word introduction. Finally, your students will be better able to move into higher levels of literature, stepping away from phonetically controlled books.
