5 Day Plan for Targeted Sight Word Intervention in MINUTES! (plus a FREEBIE)

March 27 Deedee 3 min read
 

Kindergarten Targeted Sight Word Intervention that is editable! 5 days of instruction that help students master their high frequency words.

We have been using our Sight Word Intervention for about 4-5 weeks already… boy howdy!

What a difference!!
 
I start with this! (I added the highlighted boxes).
Yellow:  Has mastered all of their kindergarten sight words
Blue:  Should have them mastered by next week… so, so close!
Pink:  Focused RTI interventions plus Junior Teacher support
With this report I can see who I need to test still (my one sweetie has been out)… not really helpful with meeting goals.
 
Then I can click on the “Parent Letter” page.  I get this report.
 I send it home, but I also use it to select focus words for each student.
 
So… Yes!  Each student has their own focus words for the week!  This seemed like an impossible expectation, but ESGI makes it SO EASY to see what they need to know.  Click HERE to get your 60 day FREE trial of ESGI!
 
Then with this product I open up my document.
Here are screen shots!
 The first thing I do is type the words in the blue boxes.  These are the word I want Mr. D to focus on next week.
 Then I click the theme I want to use.
 It jumps to that theme and the words are entered onto EVERY sheet.  You do NOT have to retype the words 600 times!!!!
This is Monday’s,
 Tuesday’s,
 Wednesday’s,
  Thursday’s,
 And Friday’s!
 
 
Then I simply print the selected pages and it takes me minutes to create custom sight word packets for my entire class.
 
Then we get busy!
 In my classroom, I have students who have mastered all of their words and they become “Junior Teachers.”  They wear a badge… It is a pretty cool thing.  In the morning, before the bell, they sit with my students who need a little more help.  I have a basket set up and this runs on automatic pilot.  Everyone loves it.  My students always have the option to opt out, but they seem to love this extra fun!
Click on this picture to get your own Junior Teacher letter.
Here is what each day’s worth of the packet looks like.  It builds in complexity as they days progress.  My junior teachers are asked to listen and support the students as they complete each task.  It is REALLY important that the words are said out loud… otherwise… what is the point?

 

 

 

 

It is not perfect, but we are working hard towards improvement!
I have also had older students come into my room to act as Junior Teachers.  Due to testing, they have not been as available, so my class stepped in!  This would also work with parent volunteers.
 
Students graph their progress as well.  This is very motivating for my class!

Can I just add… this works if you have another person support your student.  This should not be used as “seat work” or work done in isolation.  I have seen students accurately complete a worksheet and still have NO idea what they just read.  [Stepping off of my soapbox now.]
 
 There you have it!

    Do you make new word rings for every student each week?

    • Deedee March 28 at 2:40 pm

      For my whole class, we build them each week… adding 2 words per week until we have all 54 words. For my intervention kids, they have a modified word ring that is modified each week to add on the new words.

    LOVE the soapbox comment!!!

    Does all of your students do this at the same time? Or what are the other students doing if they aren't "Junior Teachers" or if they don't have the support to complete it at the time?

      SHOOT! How did I miss this question? I am sorry!!! If it is early in the morning, the other kids are finishing their morning work and they move onto their dessert tubs. In the afternoon (when the older kids come) my students are missing on a math station. Since math is not really a concern for them, I am happy to let that happen.

    I am new to ESGI and was wanting how to get it to show whole class percentages?

      Sorry Pam!!! I didn't see you question until just now. Did you figure it out? You can email me if you still need help. 🙂
