Step 1: Get your supplies ready! Choose a word work page that covers a sight word that is used frequently in the text you are using in your guided reading lesson. For example, this book has the word "you" on every page. Students will need glue, scissors, a copy of the book and a pencil.
Step 2: Cut out the letters in the side column.
Step 3: Students will use the cut out letters to make the word. Then they will read it, mix it up and make it again. They will do this three times.
Step 4: Students will glue the letters in the boxes to make the word and read it.
Step 5: Students will write the word in the boxes and read it.
Step 6:Take a word hunt in the book to see how many times they can find the word on their word work page. They will write tally marks or numbers to show how many times they found the word work sight word in the text. This allows them to apply their new word knowledge to the text.
