We are well on our way to learning our kindergarten popcorn words! So far, our class has reviewed and learned can, I and see. We encourage our students to find these words wherever they "pop" out at them--in bedtime stories, in environmental print, and more. You can find our complete printable list of kindergarten sight words here. We will learn one to two new words a week throughout the year--and learn some cool word families too!
Some of our students can be challenged by finding the popcorn words inside other words in text and environmental print--like the can in canister. We are starting our guided reading groups next week, reading "just right" texts. Mrs. Wills, another kindergarten teacher-blogger, has a great explanation of guided reading that you can check out here.
