This resource will provide you with the means to pretest your class, send a note home to parents letting them know where their child stands for the week, and a week's worth of intervention activities to use with children who need extra help. A post test and class tracking sheet is also included to help you keep track of your classes progress in mastering the sight words -- very handy to have on hand during conference time for a quick reference!
Part of learning to read is learning to recognize high frequency words on sight. Each week, we introduce 6 to 8 high frequency words in first grade that we expect the children to master. Some of the children know many of the words already and may have to learn only a few words, while other children may have to learn all the words.
The activities are consistent through out the series, so your children, after the first time going through the activities with you, will know exactly what to do in subsequent lessons. Because these activities are so low prep, they also are good activities to send home with the child who needs extra help for parents to use.
The sequence of the preprogrammed HFW follow the first grade Journeys series. If you don't use Journeys, you can program your own words using the editable PPT file.
