AUTHOR OF LESSON:

SUBJECT:
Reading sight words and phrases

Young girl with dwight holding two popsical sticks with words on them.

OBJECTIVES:

Students will read common high-frequency words by sight.

Students will recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words.

MATERIALS:

Popsicle sticks with Dolch words and phrases written on them (see lists on Pages Two and Three).

Plastic cups or round tins to hold the sticks. (Use one sort of container for the sight words and another sort for phrases.)

Ball or toy for Dwight to retrieve.

PROCEDURE:

Taking turns, students pull a stick from either container and read aloud the word or phrase on the stick.

If it is read correctly, the student keeps the stick.

If a “Bang!” stick is selected, all of the sticks go back into the appropriate container. But whenever a “Bang” stick is drawn, the student who drew it gets to throw the ball or toy for Dwight to retrieve.

At the end of the game, students count their sticks to see who has the most.

EVALUATION:

Formative assessment will be through observation as the students draw the sticks and read them aloud.
