You Can Read Sight Words Year End Review

You Can Read Sight Words Kindergarten Year End Review

We had another excellent experience with You Can Read Sight Words this past homeschool year!  I created this program for my son and used it with him a few years ago.  I then used it this past year with my daughter and thankfully she loved it and had great success with it also!

You may have noticed we abruptly stopped posting about our You Can Read adventures after Unit 13.  There are 18 total units, plus color and number words.  Wondering why we stopped sharing?  Read below to find out why!

Here’s a recap of the units she completed this year, click on the images to see each post.

As I was preparing for unit 14, she noticed what I was doing and came up next to me and read all of the words.  I quickly realized we were at the stage where I needed to “pretest” her so I didn’t waste my time preparing a unit she didn’t even need.

Well, guess what?  I showed her the rest of the words from units 15-18 and she knew all but a couple.  I opted to just have her learn those words naturally and skip the last units.

Then I began to prepare the color and number words, and found out she knew most of those too.  Below, you can see how I pretested her, having her flip over a card {from the sight word caterpillar} and read it to me.  She put them in piles of words she knew and words she didn’t know.

YCR -7458

 

So, we stopped our You Can Read Sight Words units, much more quickly than I had planned.  I followed her lead and we moved on!  I am so thankful for the way this program helped my kids and how easy it was for me to use as a home teacher.  I pray many of you will enjoy it also!

Bible Verse Printables Letter R

Bible Verse Printables Letter R

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter R are available to download for free! R is for RUN! This set is based on 1 Corinthians 9:24, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run but only one gets the prize?  Run in such a way as to get the prize.” 

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

Trace the verse  ~ we had been using the easier version most of this year, but I switched her to the verse tracing page with this unit.  She traced two lines per day until she had it done.

RLRS Letter R -7464

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying 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. I cut this verse into strips for her instead of individual words since it was so long.

RLRS letter R -7698

 

The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear her singing along in the video. The tune is “Are You Sleeping?”

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.

Five Little Chicks Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

I am sad that this is one of our last Kindergarten Literature Units,  unless I decide to do more this summer.  I had a few more I wanted to create and do with her, so we will see! 

This one, Five Little Chicks, was inspired by her recent obsession with chickens.

Five Little Chicks Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

I love setting up a central area for our theme focus and my daughter loves it too.  I gather our toys and books together and display them the night before we begin our unit. It helps to draw her in and get her excited about our learning time together. For this unit, we gathered our stuffed chickens, our farm magnets, and displayed our chicken books.

A very simple sensory tub, with popcorn kernels and little chickens.  The little gold pipe cleaner pieces are worms. She LOVED this tub, and it is still out even though our unit is done.

We stocked up on chicken books at the library!
