Designed by a speech pathologist, Teaching the First 25 Sight Words for 4 to 6 year olds, contains four explicit instruction strategies and methods for whole class and small group explicit instruction. This resource incorporates the “Fry” and “Oxford” high frequency word lists, but is flexible enough to accommodate other high frequency word lists.
Beginning readers require the presentation of more simplistic high frequency words before the presentation of more complex and irregular high frequency words. While the sight words are still presented in Fry’s groupings (i.e. the first 25, followed by words 26-100 and finally words 101 to 300), it is within these groupings that the order has been updated to consider word complexity. This order presents words ranging from the regular (and easiest to master) to less regular (and more difficult to master). For the beginning reader this will facilitate greater success and reduced frustration.

- Sight word reading and sight word spelling progress checks.
