How to use

Or print 2 pages on one A4, then fold and staple the middle of the pages;
or put sheets in sheet protectors in a file
Learn to read series
Build a good habit by having your child point to each word as he/she reads (i.e. dot prompts) - This helps with attending!
Verbally prompt your child to read the target sight words on the first 3 to 4 pages. On the following page, pause and allow your child some time to read the target word on his own.
Use the pictures to help your child identify unfamiliar words
If he is able to read the target words, praise, praise, praise! Allow him to read the rest of the book independently.
If he still struggles, it’s ok! Continue prompting a few more times, then pause to allow him to try reading the words on his own again.
Make it fun and functional! Identify items in your surrounding and describe them e.g. The (cup) is (yellow)!
Read to your child daily to help him develop a love for reading! Not only are you teaching him how to sound out words, you are also growing their vocabulary and building essential comprehension skills.
Practice makes perfect! It is ok to have your child read the same book over and over again. Repetition helps with learning!
Get your child to point to different sight words to see if he/she can identify the words receptively (e.g. point to ‘like’; point to ‘see’)
Practice reading the same sight words in different books, texts, worksheets, etc.
