SIGHT WORDS/WORD ATTACK SKILLS PROGRAM
With a basic understanding of phonics (the relationship between letters and sounds) most beginning readers are able to decode unfamiliar words that follow the usual spelling rules.
Alternatively, sight words are commonly used words in reading that do not follow the usual letter sound patterns and therefore cannot be deciphered by sounded out. You must see them and say them automatically.
A child’s ability to read fluently and comprehend what is being read can be impacted by having poor knowledge of sight words.
The K-2 Sight Words/Word Attack Skills group facilitates this process and assists children in reading more confidently, fluently and accurately by being taught the most common sight words through engaging games and activities.
Ability based groups so students are learning at their level.
Fun and engaging learning games and activities.
Ongoing assessment and review.
Child and parent feedback.
Instilling growth mindset practises and beliefs.
