Their folders included the following:
- a list of sight words/high frequency words
- an "I Spy" sheet of sight words
- magazines geared towards a younger audience, Chirp and chickaDEE
- two of them had a laminated manila folder with alphabet post-its to build sight words
During their last RtI session before break, I introduced them to the pack so they would be familiar with it and could take ownership in showing a parent. They would be able to use their list of sight words in multiple ways--from just reading off the list to using the list to look through the magazines for words they know. The "I Spy" sheets are literally just a white sheet of paper with 20-25 sight words written in all directions all over the paper.
My students seemed very excited to be taking these packs home with them. I hope to hear that they put them to some use when we come back from break.
