One thing I loved last year was the powerpoints I made for word reading practice. I am realizing that we need to do that more this year. I really saw an increase in their ability to recognize words because they saw them so often. Anyway... here is what mine will look like this year.
1.5 Word Reading
My powerpoints coincide with Reading Street from Scott Foresman. The kids will be seeing them in our guided reading books, weekly story, and spelling words. If you want the powerpoint file leave me a comment with your email address. The powerpoint has animations. It starts with a blank page and then one you click in each word.
