A Note to Parents

This Wordbook contains all the sight words we will be studying throughout the year plus some additional enrichment words. Your child should spend some time each week studying this Wordbook with an adult. The amount of time will vary according to the ability level of the individual child.

The si ght words are each followed by a sentence using the word. The sentence i s to help your child figure out the word through the context of the sentence. The list we are currently studying will be marked with a paper clip. Here are some tips for studying the words

1. As you study the list, vary the order of the words.

2. If th e c hi ld h as di f fi c ul ty r e ad i ng t h e w o r d, th e ad ul t c an r ead th e sentenc e sayi ng b lan k i n plac e o f th e u nd er li ned w or d. T h e c hi ld should be able to identify the key word through context and by seeing th e b egi nni ng and endi ng letter s o f th e wor d. 3. T h e s t u d e n t i s n o t r e s p o n s i b l e f o r r e a d i n g e a c h s e n t e n c e . I d o , however, encourag e tho se students who are able readers to read th e sentence to help figure out the word or to read the sentence simply to practice reading.

4. This wordbook is a great tool to print and leave in your

vehicle. SO on those long trips, or even short trips, someone in the car can help your child study without having to miss out on any of their play time.

This Wordbook is meant to aid your child. It is used in conjunction with our reading and wri ti ng experi enc es. S tudyi ng thi s Wordbook sh ou ld not be a caus e o f anxi ety o r str ess for yo u o r y o u r c hi l d.
