  • Sight Words Lists by Phonics Skill

    $7.49

    These sight word lists for Dolch pre-primer, primer, 1st and 2nd grade, the first 200 Fry sight words, PLUS the Zeno sight words are a HUGE game changer! Why? When you organize your sight word lists by phonics skill, students learn the words faster…

    Old school lists like Dolch and Fry were sorted by the frequency words appear in text. For instance, THE is written most often so it’s the first words students practice. The philosophy isn’t terrible – if a child is going to read THE more than any other word, it makes sense that learning it first would come in handy.

    The problem is that THE is often taught right alongside other words that follow completely different rules: OF, AND, A… And that means kids have to wrap their brain around:

    – the short A sound in AND,
    – the long A sound in A,
    – the F that makes a V sound in OF,
    – and (as if that wasn’t enough!) the two letters T & H that make just one sound in THE.

    It’s no wonder that so many students struggle with sight word lists!

    But there is a *much* easier way! Instead of sorting sight words by frequency, we can sort them by phonics skill. Then students can master one spelling rule at a time!

    These print-and-go sheets make it so easy for you to do just that! They include the Dolch sight words through second grade, the first 200 Fry sight words, and the Zeno sight words.

  • NO PREP Place Value Activity Pack

    Most of the activities include multiple versions giving you plenty of ways to differentiate. One student can be working on the numbers 1-10 while another child completes the same activity with the numbers 111-120.
