Students will be able to read and recognize new sight words.
Students will be able to identify grade-level sight words with more complex spelling patterns using visual and written supports.
Display a familiar picture book to the class (big book if possible).
Read a few pages aloud to the class while using a pointer to follow along as you read each word.
Explain that when you read a book, many of the words are ones that you don't actually need to sound out. This is because they are a special kind of word, called sight words. Say, "A sight word is what we call a word that we should learn by sight. So that when we see it written down, we already know what it says!"
