Bob Books: Sight Words First Grade

by Bobby Lynn Maslen

ISBN: 9780545019248
ANNOTATION:
Sight words are words that must be recognized by sight rather than sounded out. They are the most frequently used words in the English language, such as "are," "was," and "out." Children who are learning to read are encouraged to practice and memorize this list of words, in order to become fluent readers (who are able to read for meaning rather than stumble over words). Sight words are taught primarily in kindergarten and first grade, though often the practice extends up through fourth grade. BOB BOOKS have always incorporated sight words, though the sounding-out approach minimized their use. These will be the first BOB BOOKS products to focus on learning and practicing sight words. They will stand alone as two boxes - neither MY FIRST, nor numbered as a SET. Their noted grades (kindergarten or first) will serve as the level. The titles allow parents to choose whether to prep their children for next year, or reinforce what they've learned last year.

Publisher Description

Sight words, or high frequency words, are words that appear repeatedly in your children's reading material. Knowing these words "by sight" is essential for reading speed and comprehension. Consistent short vowels and simple stories mean children sound out (decode) most of the story, and must memorize only three sight words per book. Your child will continue to build confidence and sight word fluency, with Bob Books Sight Words - First Grade.

These ten books provide 30 more sight words, in slightly longer stories, to build confidence and success in the progressing reader.

Inside the box you'll find:

  • 10 easy-to-read, charming books, 12 pages each.
  • Slightly longer and more complex stories.
  • All stories told in three, four and five letter words, plus sight words.
  • Consistent short vowels mean easy decoding in the rest of the story.
  • Three new sight words introduced in each book.
  • Context clues and illustrations give sight word hints.
  • 30 two-sided, sight words flash cards.
Sight words introduced in this set: after, are, ate, before, bring, come, find, good, he, into, like, little, long, make, my, new, now, old, play, pretty, said, she, than, that, too, under, what, will, with, you. With Bob Books Sight Words, your child will soon be joining the three million happy kids that say, "I read the whole book "(R)
