You Can Read Sight Words Review Unit 1-4

It’s review time with You Can Read since we completed unit one, unit two, unit 3, and unit 4!  Because I never want to move her too quickly, we do tons of review along the way and also take a week out {at least} every 4 lessons to do a full review week. I also slow units down as needed, as this is a mastery program {meaning I don’t want to add new words until she has mostly mastered the previous words}.

Here’s a post sharing You Can Read Review with Krash when he did it!  See all of Krash’s Kindergarten posts here.

Assessment

At the beginning of our review week I did a word reading assessment.  She missed 2 on the first try, you can see those below in the purple pen. At the end of the review week I repeated the assessment {in pink} and she could quickly read all of the words!

Bitsboard Review

I created review units for the Bitsboard app and they include more words which makes the games more fun. We played games on Bitsboard to review words from units 1-4 all week!

Here’s the very basic instructions for finding and using the You Can Read units on the Bitsboard app {which I am fairly certain is only Apple}

  • Open Bitsboard
  • Select “Catalog” over on the right, it’s blue at the top
  • Select “Shared” it’s in the middle at the top
  • Type “You Can Read” in the search area on the top right
  • Boards should show up, bad news they don’t sort them in order so it takes a bit to find the unit or review unit you are looking for.

Sight Word Caterpillar Play

we used all of our sight word caterpillar circles to play smack the word.

See a video of us in action with me calling the words and Ladybug doing the smacking…

 

Here’s another video showing Ladybug calling the words for me to smack.  It’s a good review to do it both ways!

 

We also used them to find words in our easy readers.

We had lots of fun with our review.  I especially like that I decided to keep the caterpillar circles in the pocket chart this time {I stuck them to a wall with Krash} so we could use them a lot.  She loves getting them down to play with!

Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter F

RLRS Letter F Matthew 4 Bible Verse Printables

 

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter E are available to download for free!  F is for FOLLOW! This set is based on Matthew 4:19, “Come, follow me, Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men” 

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds and really enjoyed it.

I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter L right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter F. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me.

 

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

She loves the coloring page. She likes to make it match.

Color ~ Trace ~ Write the letter Ff

Since she dislikes this page for now, we used Wikki stix for the middle set of letters, and she happily wrote the last set of letters and colored the first!

RLRS Letter F -0316 RLRS Letter F -0317

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

RLRS Letter F -0944

 

 

We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram. Here is  our home banner!

Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

RLRS Letter F -0945

 

 

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter F in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is Row, Row, Row Your Boat.

Seeds Family Worship also has a wonderful version of this verse on their CD Seeds of Purpose, it’s #11 “Fishers of Men.” See it here on Amazon!

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.

Shooting Sight Words ~ Learning to Read is FUN!

Shooting Sight Words with a Nerf Gun!  Great Word Fun for Kids!



Years ago when Krash was learning to read, my husband took over homeschool one day.  This was what I walked in and saw ~ shooting sight words with Nerf guns!

Shooting Sight Words with Nerf Gun! Shoot Sight Words with Nerf Gun!

Needless to say, this was a FAVORITE way to practice sight words for my son and we brought the idea back recently with my daughter who was reviewing her You Can Read sight words! She LOVED it and Krash helped her out and enjoyed being a part of the fun again.  He remembered doing this when he was younger!

You Can Read Review - Shoot Sight Words with Nerf Gun!

We just write the words she is reviewing in bubbles on a dry erase board.

Shoot Sight Words with Nerf Gun!

She uses the Nerf darts with the suction cups on the ends to shoot the word I call out! Simple, effective and FUN!  Lots of giggles too!

Shoot Sight Words with Nerf Gun!

 

See a video clip of us playing here on YouTube, or the shorter version here on Instagram! In the longer video below you’ll see we switched to sentences instead of bubbles in the end.  This is another variation of making the game work in different ways.
