Best Bingo: Sight Word Kit A–Better Than Dolch

Effective, enjoyable, and easy to use, this kit is so much better than Dolch Sight Words. Do not overload or confuse beginning or struggling readers by making them learn more words by rote than necessary. 

The 100 words in Sight Word Kits A and B of Learn To Read Bingo are the ONLY research-based, high frequency, irregular, sight words they need to memorize. Decoding in English is 95% regular, but common exceptions to predictability (like "they" and "said" ) confuse many students. Research-based Sight Word Kits A and B provide varied instruction and enjoyable practice in the 100 most common, irregular, sight words in English beginning reading texts. When these sight words are paired with the phonics instruction that is common in the primary grades, both fluency and comprehension improve dramatically.

 Each kit (50 Sight words) includes:

1. 10 Lesson Sheets for instruction (or homework!) with 5 words/lesson, using ALL MODALITIES--visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.

2. Flash Cards are included, as well as ideas for enjoyable games to play for extra practice. Copies may be made for at-home play.

3. Each kit also has 24 classroom tested BINGO Cards, with a 25 item format and instructions for easy use in large classrooms of young or troubled readers.
