Fall Sight Word Book

Oct 8, 2011

Sight words are words that appear frequently in print, but they are either difficult to sound out, or don't follow the rules. New readers need to develop a “bank” of these sight words, so they can read them quickly, without having to pause to figure them out. I love making sight word books for my girls using everyday pictures. They read these books more than any other books on our bookshelves because they have pictures of them in it (I still need to print out the picture going on the cover). 

This is the cover of our latest 8x8 sight word book (I'll post the rest of the pages once I finish the book). I'm going to focus on just a few sight words for this book (I, see, the, at, and look).  Sample sentences:
I see the apple tree.
Look at the pumpkins.
I see the corn.
Look at the leaves.
etc... 
Studies have shown that children retain more from a sight word book that is 8 pages long. If it is any longer, children tend to lose interest and don't remember the sight words.
 So give one a try and let me know how it turns out. They make awesome gifts too!
Items used:
White gel pen
Random paper from my stash
Peachy Keen Stamps (wide eyed kid face assortment, everyday character faces)
Cricut (Simply Charmed, Platin School Book, Designer's Calendar)
