For the past ten years I have been making these reading books for my students.......WARNING.......they are a lot of work!
I think they are worth it......
the children can review from them all school year and summer.
Everything they need is in one place!
Parents love them......and my favorite comments are from my students throughout the years and it sounds something like this...."My brother had this book and I have been waiting to get my own."
I make the books out of
The books are two sided.
The first side of the book is a word family book....
I change the cover each year based on my theme.
I introduce and review about 20 word families a year.
The other side of the book is the sight words.
Each of the sight words that I introduce throughout the kindergarten year is in the book. It is in a sentence that we review in class. We focus on five words a week. The children who already know how to read have different sentences......a bit more challenging.
The smile on the page means you can sound out the word.
The eyes means you need to learn the word with your eyes.
