Sight Words 1 offers teachers an innovative way to reach
beginning readers of all ages. This reproducible program, by
Janie Haugen-McLane, Jill Haney, and Cynthia Hernandez, teach
commonly used words using high-interest, rhyming poems about
"real-life" topics. Sight Words 1 teaches 144 words in 36 lessons.
The program features a 12-step routine that guides teachers in using the 4 major multisensory learning modalities (visual, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic) to teach each lesson's words. Each week, the teacher presents 4 new sight words, first through the context of a poem and then in isolation. Illustrated scenes on each poem poster help students with limited or no reading skills comprehend the poem's meaning. The poem's 4 underlined sight words have corresponding, illustrated flash cards that use the context of the poem to give each word meaning.
For teachers who already have Sight Words 2, Sight Words 1 uses the same proven methods to introduce students to 144 new sight words.
