Sounding Out the Sight Words An Alternative to Rote Memorization is designed for any teacher or parent looking for an alternative to sight word drills. It is a resource for helping students understand and read the most common words in English.
This book contains short, streamlined lessons that enable you to teach students the phonics and spelling concepts they need to read all of the Dolch words, as well as thousands of additional words. The lessons can supplement any reading program. It is an excellent resource for those required to memorize or teach traditional sight words using rote memorization. Each lesson is only about ten minutes long, making them easy to use at home in the evening or as a component of language arts instruction during the school day.
Both Foundations and Essentials teach the same phonograms and spelling rules more thoroughly. However, many of those using Foundations and Essentials find Sounding Out the Sight Words an excellent supplement to provide additional practice of high-frequency words.
