Sight Word Flashcards
~ Mary Bencini

 I have a set of sight word flashcards that I made. On one side is the sight word and on the other side is a short sentence using the sight word. If a child is having difficulty naming the word, I always turn the flashcard over and show the child the sentence with the sight word in it. Most kids can usually identify the word when it is used in a sentence. Context...Context...Context... I note on the child's list of sight words if they could identify the word within context. I only use this list at the beginning of the year with my beginner readers just to get an idea where they are in the reading process.
