How to Use the 607 SnapWords® Center Kit
"The Center Kits will work for you because once you introduce sight words, using the 607 SnapWords® Teaching Cards, you will assign Sight Word Activity Cards to each pair of students and each set of partners will work on their own level, at their own pace. The way this Kit is designed will allow you to train your kiddos to use the center and then it will pretty much run itself - with students reporting to you on their progress through the Lists of SnapWords.® The review and practice of sight words will be totally student-driven, which empowers and engages kids in learning."
A. Begin with SnapWords® Center Cards.
Separate them into levels (refer to the colored, numbered dots in the lower corner of each card) and fasten each level with a book ring (included in the kit). You will ring the cards that you are teaching or have taught so the students can review and practice with a partner in the center.
B. Choose partners for students.
The center will have six children, each paired with a partner. It is possible to accommodate 8 children, but it might be crowded.
C. Locate your activity cards and plastic stands.
One side has instructions for the teacher and the other side has some basic instructions for the students. Be sure and run through the activities with the kids before turning them loose at the center!
to your whole class using SnapWords® Mini-Lessons (in the 607 SnapWords® Teaching Kit). As you teach Levels of SnapWords® to your whole class, children will practice with their partner in the Sight Word Center. Just follow the sequence in SnapWords® Mini-Lessons and if some children learn the words very quickly, encourage them move on independently in the Center.
E. Use Sight Words in Sentences.
Two of the activity cards will involve Sight Words in Sentences. This book will help partners practice reading for fluency. Then it will serve as a pre-test resource as the partners check each other's readiness for passing up to the next level of SnapWords®. Students will report to you as they feel their partner is ready for you to test him/her.
F. Use the Reading Phones
These are provided in the Kit and are sound amplification devices that serve several purposes in the Independent Sight Word Center.
G. Assess each child
once they have had time to practice and once their partner has reported that they know their List of words. Use our TRACKING SHEETS on a clipboard for a handy recording/reporting tool or simply listen to the child reading the appropriate section of Sight Words in Sentences and make informal notes about the child's reading habits. Does he stumble over particular words? Revisit the picture cards. Use our printable CERTIFICATES to reward each child as he/she finishes a List of SnapWords®!
