You Can Read Sight Words ~ Unit 6

You Can Read continues to be a fun part of our homeschool Kindergarten.  Along with adding these new words, we also reviewed the previous words from unit one, unit two, unit 3, unit 4 and unit 5. You can see how we store ALL of our You Can Read stuff here.

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

We took two weeks to complete this unit, as you will see below.

Unit Organization

You can see how we store ALL of our You Can Read stuff here.  For current units I use thisYou-Can-Read--7714_thumb1112 metal file container {Target} and hanging folders.  The pink ones are You Can Read units, the yellow are her Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printables. I have a daily lesson plan for both in a sheet protector in the front.  The You Can Read printable lesson plan is here.

I have been asked a lot how we do things so I am trying to outline it for you as much as possible!  I am not sure if I will blog all the way through You Can Read like this, but if it is helpful, I might, let me know! Below you will see exactly what we did on each day and how I spread it out.

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.

You Can Read Sight Word Review



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.

Shoot the Sight Words

This was the first time Ladybug had the fun experience of shooting sight words!  She loved it!

Review BINGO

We used the Review BINGO board, this is a simple and easy review!

Sight Word Caterpillar Play

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

You Can Read Review -0302

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.

You Can Read Review -0294

You Can Read Review -0298

 

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!

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.

You Can Read Sight Words ~ Unit 4

We are in full swing now with You Can Read since we officially started back to homeschool on August 11!  Along with adding these new words, we also reviewed the previous 12 words from unit one, unit two, and unit 3.

Here’s a video clip of Bitsboard in action.

 

She was not happy with me.  I didn’t laminate her puzzles, just used cardstock and that was not to her liking.  She grumbled through the entire thing.

Here’s a video clip of us playing…

 

She didn’t learn all 4 words as quickly, and I noticed a bit of memory loss with review words, but was totally fine with that!  I knew a review week was coming next, and we needed it! Our next post will share all we did for a solid review week!

Here’s most of her completed work from the time we spent with these words…
