The Struggling Reader – Sight Words Test and Instructional Activities
My daughter and I continue to work through The Struggling Reader program. Our latest adventure is Sight Words. As with Phonemic Awareness and Phonics, the assessment was very easy. The flashcards were preprinted with sight words (most frequent to least frequent). I made copies of the evaluation sheets, and I marked my daughter’s responses, including times she read the words correctly but hesitated before answering.
The assessment made it clear which sight words needed the most work. With that in mind, I turned to the instructional activities and got started. As with the other The Struggling Reader programs, the sight words activities were each marked with the types of learning styles they work best with. The activities are fun and easy to do with items you probably already have on hand.
The Struggling Reader’s sight words program is, like their other programs, reasonably priced. The value increases when you realize that the Eckenwilers have done all the hard work for you! The entire program is set up and ready to use.
