Episode #19: Those Darn Sight Words
Show Notes

Check out my latest "Teaching Tuesday" podcast episode on those words that children often struggle with identifying fluently. 

During my teaching career, it seemed like some kids "got" them, and others struggled tremendously.  I hope the information below will help make this learning process for YOUR kiddos much more enjoyable. 

This week, I will also be launching some great resources to help fill in those reading gaps during this crazy school year.  I promise...they will help tremendously!!!

One of the most important aspects is providing multiple ways to encounter these words within approachable context.  
-rebus readings
-bookbag with small age and skill appropriate readers
-reading pages

Resources will be available this week for Kinder and 1st grade!!!
