Have you found that sight words and some children just don't mix?? Sight words are a pain because they make up most of our print and most cannot be sounded out! I've been teaching sight words for 11 years now and just recently found something that actually works! While surfing the web this summer I ran across I See, I Spell, I Learn. I See, I Spell, I Learn, is a small business created by Roma Chadha. She is a dyslexia tutor and has worked with children with dyslexia and ADHD for 5 years now. Roma saw a need in her children when it came to sight words and could not find a product on the market to meet that need. So what did she do? She created a product to help them! She found that her students learn sight words best with visual clues. Roma now has 2 sets of picture sight word cards, covering over 50 common sight words and a spelling work book. The cards are brilliant, the sight word has a picture in it and a sentence to go with it. I have been using the cards for 3 months and my kids love them!
Each card has a sight word with an illustration in a letter and a sentence on the back.
