As summer approaches all teachers fear the amount of regression students will make while away. The lack of practice and the lack of time most families have to work with children compounds the problem. Even those who find the time have trouble knowing what to work on with their children.
Here is something that may help (at least a little) those younger students just learning their sight words. I have a playlist on YouTube that goes through all 600 words on the Fry List. They are broken down into 24 videos with 25 words each. The videos are nothing fancy…it will show a word for 3 seconds, then the word changes color and it is said. The child’s goal is to say the word before the video does. If not, they at least hear it correctly and can repeat it. Each video lasts about 3.5 minutes.
I created some index cards that can be printed out. Each index card has a QR code that will link to one of the Fry List videos. You can download that file here: Fry List Video QR Codes.
There is also a QR code that links to the playlist so all videos can be gone through one at a time.
These cards would also be great to use in a station for your students. It is differentiated in the fact that they can choose which list to watch. The words generally become more difficult as you move forward.
