Add labels to pictures. Have the kids turn and talk about why it's important to label things. We decided that labels help us know what is inside of a box, and labels help us know what pictures are in our illustrations. We made this label anchor chart.

Sight Word Fluency Sticks are a powerful tool for you to use in your Kindergarten, 1st grade or 2nd grade classroom. I believe in this system because it is developmentally appropriate, research based, and meets the needs and ability levels of all the students in your classroom in a low stress and low maintenance way. When students focus on 10 sight words at a time, this sets the child up for success. They are no longer overwhelmed with a pile of flashcards to practice.
