These little books make teaching ADEC Sight Words and fluency so easy! Each student can move through the lists at their own pace, allowing varying levels of readers to progress using the same tool.
First students receive Book 1, which contains the 100 Grade 1 ADEC Sight Words. Each book page has 10 ADEC Sight Words on the front and 10 fluency phrases on the back using the same 10 words. When students read front and back accurately and fluently they move on to the next list of 10.
I sign and date the bottom of each list to keep a record of when the list is mastered. When students master an entire booklet, they have mastered all of the ADEC sight words for that grade level, and are ready to graduate to the next grade. If they can get through 5 booklets, that's 500 sight words and 500 fluency phrases!
My students keep these in their home/school book bags so they are ready to practice or "level up" at any time. There are ten numbered spots on the front of each book for coloring, stamping, or placing stickers on to show what levels have been mastered.
I color code the covers to visually keep track of what list each student is working on. Students are so excited to graduate to a new level which motivates students to practice at home and school.
It is up to you how often you check a student's mastery. If students are reading accurately and fluently it takes less than 30 seconds to test. I often test at the end of a guided reading group, during independent reading, and during recess.
You are able to place students on the beginning level you feel is appropriate. Students that are reading above grade level do not need to begin on book 1. I teach grade 3, so I began my higher readers on book 2. Students have been super motivated to practice during "read with a partner" center. I love that my higher readers are such great assistants to those on lower levels by listening, correcting, and pretesting to make sure they are prepared to test. I keep a basket of stickers on my desk so that students are able to choose a sticker to place on the number spots on the cover of their books.
