I have done the post assessment for color words so I will send that home today – the kids did very well! I also am starting to pre-assess sightwords. I will try to get all of these done on Sunday and send it home then. These are words that students should become familiar with in order to become stronger readers. Just like the color word pre-assessment, this is just to see what words they already know. It is completely fine if they are not able to read very many yet. We will be practicing them often in class and it would also be very helpful if you could practice them a bit at home. The post assessment will be in January (I’ll let you know the exact date at a later time).
**Important: There are various sightword lists (A, B, C, and D). If you happen to misplace the list, please ask me for a new one so I can make sure you get the correct list for your child.
