Can you build on you child’s strength of knowing sight words to fill in some of their reading gap? Favor?Tweet
When I’m helping your child with their Sound-Word Knowledge & Processing, Can you help them by doing these systematic, explicit, sight word activities (mentioned below)???
Also, For Dyslexia Help: Is your Comprehending BUT struggles with Reading Fluently??? They may need Sight Word Knowledge (ask me about nonsense word knowledge too).
What are Sight Words? Sight words are words which are usually high-frequency that do not fit standard phonetic patterns and must be memorized.
Activity 1- done till 90% mastery Materials: movable alphabet, sand/tray, sand-paper and fingers (ha).
TOUCH-FINGER-TO-FINGER Method-Spell three letter word by letter name and touch the three fingers being held up (note individual letter names), write out the whole word while touching a finger by writing in some medium such as sand/tray, sand paper, table/shaving cream, movable alphabet, etc.. Then, count the letters make sure all there and none of the letters were omitted. Then, match the letters to original word to make sure none were replaced, repeated, added or substituted. (NOTE: Similar to Orton-Gillingham Method: When teaching sight words, don’t begin with one and two letter sight words first but three letter. The brain needs a distinct beginning, middle and end. Similar to Montessori Method- When teaching sight words, you can wait till they have mastered 50 phonetic first before starting sight word leveled mastery. Also, I suggest in learning in chunks of three (three is key to all learning) using Montessori’s Three Part Lesson (you can google on you tube).
Decoding: SIGHT WORDS- TOUCH-FINGER-TO-FINGER Write individual sounds on the line, write whole word while on the line while touch finger to table. NOTE: look at Dyslexia Screening to see which letter is normally dropped, before writing have the student WATCH OUT for that Letter Position.

SIGHT WORDS: words that don’t follow standard rules or sounds. That them count the and match. Use TOUCH-FINGER-TO-FINGER (see description above). Write individual letter names, write out the whole word while touching finger, then spell by writing onto graphic organizer (blank copy) : ALWAYS Check Your Writing
