SnapWords® Cards are essentials for teaching sight word recognition to a wide variety of learners, including visual learners, children labeled with ADD or ADHD, autism, dyslexia, or right brained learners. The images embedded into each word ensure that children gain a rich sight word vocabulary as easily as a camera snapping a picture and storing it in memory. But that’s not all. Beyond just recognizing the words, the tools on the reverse of each card move children past calling out words to really understanding what they mean and how to use them in sentences.
The reverse of each card displays the word without a visual and describes a hand motion for the word – a necessary tool for many kinesthetic learners and children with dyslexia. In addition, a sentence using the word and coordinating with the visual on the front of the card focuses children’s attention on the meaning of the word and how it is used in everyday communication.
These images have proven to be the turning point for children who had not made progress through any other means. List B includes 59 high-frequency words. They are printable and can be displayed electronically.
I always had a handful of these words in a pocket chart I draped over an easel so that when my kiddos were on the rug, everyone could see really well. We talked about a word at a time, just chatting about what is in the picture. We'd play a few games and when the children could easily recognize the words with the pictures, we'd vote on which word to turn over to the plain side. We took about 10-15 minutes every morning for sight word work and over time the results were amazing! The first graders worked through ALL the words we had! Over 300 of them. Start today. You will love how well it goes!
