301 SnapWords® Teaching Cards

SW3011

The 5 SnapWords® Lists contained in 301 SnapWords® Teaching Cards are conveniently bundled for those of you who have already purchased our best-selling 306 SnapWords® Kit.

IN THE KIT

Once you add the 301 SnapWords® Kit (Lists F, G, N1, N2, V) to the 306 SnapWords® Kit, you will have a total of 643 SnapWords®: 220 Dolch words, 300 Fry, and 500 Fountas & Pinnell, plus additional words that have been specifically requested by customers!

Lists Nouns1 and Nouns2 are high-frequency nouns that children will need to be able to read across the curriculum, List V is all 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?

While the 306 SnapWords® Kits are designed to help your students recognize essential sight words instantly, the focus of the 301 SnapWords® Kit is on adding other skills to sight word recognition. 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, box, 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, 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 “My cat is by the blue door.” Or “She realized the picture was of a person she knew.” 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.
  • As you create sentences with the newly-learned 301 words, you can 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 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 – so you can focus on the other important aspects of reading.

ALSO INCLUDED: 

  • How to Teach SnapWords®, a book full of sight word activities and games that will help you successfully teach children to instantly recognize their SnapWords®.
  • The Complete Sight Words in Sentences will provide reading practice with sight words in plain sentences. A great assessment tool as well!

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".

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.
