Star Words
We also call these words our "sight" words. This means that we expect ALL our Robots to be able to look at the word and know it, read it, and spell it. In each 3 week unit we learn anywhere from two to four star words. We practice them throughout the unit and then add them to our word wall. Feel free to practice these words at home with your child! 
If your child is up for a challenge we also send home a "I Can Read" book daily. Each book contains 100 words and sentences containing those words. This is a fun activity that you can do with your child every night to enhance their love of reading! We have 5 books total, so there is a possibility that your child will leave kindergarten reading 500 words or more! 
It is so fun to watch their minds grow with excitment for reading throughout the year!
