Sight word recognition is very important in first grade reading. The PowerPoint below is a great resource to use at home. In the classroom, I will start the slides, and students will be standing. The students say the word as it flashes (the goal is for them to automatically know the word). The background of the slides will change colors every few words. Students JUMP when they see the change in color. This would be a fun game to play together at home. The goal for the end of the year is for students to get as close as possible to being able to recognize 180 sight words. Anything over 180 will put students in GREAT shape for 2nd grade.
