Library Elementary Girl Students Reading

Reading is the most important skill
that a child will learn in school.

blue bullet point Reading sight words is one of the basic building blocks of learning how to read. A sight word is a word that children can read readily without having to sound it out. To lay a foundation for learning how to read, it is imperative to introduce sight words to children.

blue bullet point Above, you will find a free five page Word Wall Bulletin Board Display Banner for you to download and use for your classroom word wall. I have also included cards for the letters of the alphabet to use along with the banner.

blue bullet point Displaying a word wall in your classroom will be a useful visual aid to your students as they are reading sight words, practicing them, and committing them to memory.

blue bullet point Library Boy Student Reading Picture Book Many sight words are difficult to portray with pictures or hard to sound out through phonics methods. Therefore, these words must be learned as sight words and they must be quickly recognized in order to achieve reading fluency.

blue bullet point Once children have learned and memorized these basic sight words, they are able to read more fluently and with greater comprehension. There are two lists of reading sight words that are used the most frequently by teachers:

Fry 1000 Instant Words
Dolch Sight Words

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
