301 SnapWords® Pocket Chart Cards

SW3012

The 5 SnapWords® Lists contained in 301 SnapWords® Kits are a wonderful addition for those of you who have our best-selling 306 SnapWords® Kit.

IN THE KIT:

Once you combine the 301 SnapWords® Kit (Lists F, G, N1, N2, V) with the 306 SnapWords® Kit, you will have a total of 643 SnapWords®: 220 Dolch words, 300 Fry, and 500 Fountas & Pinnell and more.

Lists Nouns1 and Nouns2 are words that children will need as they read other subjects, List V is verbs to make it easy to make sentences. Finally, Lists F and G are a mix of nouns and words that children will find in other subject areas such as science and social studies. 



WHY THIS KIT?

Once your children have learned the words in the 306 SnapWords® Kit, engage them in learning words that will make reading far easier for them. Here are some important ways you can use the 301 Kit:

  • Introduce concrete words to children as young as 18 months. (For example: baby, bike, boat, coat, dog, shoe, sun, etc.) These are objects they are familiar with, so learning to recognize the word will be easy.
  • Teach your students words that are used across the curriculum (example: problem, number, insect, island, world, planet, ocean, space, etc.) This will make reading for other subjects much easier.
  • Add context and meaning to abstract sight words. Go from learning a, at, by, on, if, put, ride, pick, soon, etc. to making sentences such as “I can run down the hill.” Or “The insects ate the grass from around the house.” All the words in those sentences are SnapWords®.
  • Because you can create sentences with the words in the 301 Kit, you can focus your attention on reading comprehension is where it should be. Children can use SnapWords to make their own sentences in the pocket chart. 
  • Focus on teaching parts of speech. Identify and isolate those words that are nouns or verbs or adjectives and teach children how to create sentences properly using those words.
  • If your children learned easily with 306 SnapWords® Kit, it makes so much sense to continue on with learning the words in the 301 SnapWords® Kit.

Note: The Teaching Cards contain the same content as the Pocket Chart Cards. The only difference is size: Teaching Cards are 5.5" x 4.25", while Pocket Chart Cards are 4.25" x 2.75".

ALSO INCLUDED:

  • How to Teach SnapWords®, a book of activities and games, will help you successfully teach children to instantly recognize their SnapWords®.
  • The Complete Sight Words in Sentences will provide reading practice in real sentences as children learn their SnapWords®. Also wonderful for informal assessments.

Thank you for your interest in our 301 SnapWords® Kit. If you purchased a 306 SnapWords® Kit, the 301 SnapWords® Kit will complete your collection of SnapWords®.

 

While both the 306 and 301 SnapWords® Kits are designed to help your students recognize essential sight words instantly, the additional focus of the 301 SnapWords® Kit is on adding other essential reading skills such as comprehension.

 

While learning to recognize individual sight words is important, our goal for our children is for them to read whole passages fluently and with comprehension. Adding the 301 SnapWords® Kit will help accomplish this as it contains rich nouns and verbs that your child can use to create meaningful sentences. It will change their experience from being able to read lists of words to being able to easily read whole passages.

 

Here are some important uses for the 301 Kit:

  • Introduce words to very young children – as young as 18 months. (For example: ball, bird, box, book cat, car, boy, etc.) These are objects they are familiar with, so learning to recognize the word will be easy.
  • Teach your students words that are used across the curriculum (example: o’clock, number, insect, world, planet, ocean, world, etc.) This will make reading for other subjects much easier.
  • Add context and meaning to abstract sight words. Go from learning I, to, on, in, the, play, have, etc. to making sentences such as “That house is on an island out in the ” Or “I’m finally free to go play and have fun!” All the words in those sentences are SnapWords®.

 

  • Because you can create sentences with the words in the 301 Kit, you can focus your attention on making sure reading comprehension is where it should be. Use a pocket chart to display your sentences.
  • The hands-on aspect of creating sentences with cards will engage active learners, will capture their attention, and will make their learning student-driven.

 

  • As you create sentences with the newly-learned 301 words, you can focus on teaching parts of speech and sentence construction. Identify and group words that are nouns or verbs or adjectives and teach children how to create sentences properly using those words. This practice will not only propel them into reading, but will help tremendously in creating skilled writers.

 

If your children did well with 306 SnapWords® Kit, it makes so much sense to continue on with the 301 SnapWords® Kit so word recognition will remain easy for them – and so you can focus on the other important aspects of reading.

 

Pick up your 301 SnapWords kit today and allow your child to form their sentences with deep, longer, and more special words as was not possible before.

Parent reviews:
"My children LOVE learning with these cards! Thank you so much for creating a simple & effective way to learn. I wish these had been around when I was younger." "Your snapwords cards have CHANGED my daughter's life. She could not read anything before we started with them, now she can recognize and spell most of set A on her own and is working through set B now. Thank you!!!!"

"I am pleased to say that my son for the first time said the other day that he actually is liking to read. He had struggled with his sight words since beginning to read. He heavily uses his phonetics and can read very large words, but has always had a problem with the sight words. Since getting the sight words and sentence book over Christmas break, we started to use the cards when we started back to school in Jan. He is reading so well and we are on list C already and almost done with it. He is reading much more fluently. Thank you so much, this has truly been a blessing for all of us."

 "I love the flash cards and my 5 year old daughter has learned very quickly. She wasn't with regular flash cards and I was told her attention span was too short. Not the case. Not only is my daughter learning but with your flash cards she went from not being able to recognize words such as "is" and "an" but in just 3 weeks she is now recognizing all of the level A words and is working on the level B words. She is also spelling without looking at her flash cards 30 of those words!"
