Teach a New Sight Word Bookmark

Teach a New Sight Word (pages 78-79, NSFGR) is one of the most important Word Study procedures for teachers to learn. Watch the video link of Jan doing it (Emergent Video Link 6), then work in pairs with one teacher acting as the student. Choose several sight words from the lists on pages 317-320 NSFGR and practice teaching a word to one another. Repeat this several times being careful not to skip any steps. 
I’ve noticed that many teachers keep their NSFGR book open to pages 78-79 as they practice What’s Missing, Mix and Fix, Table Writing, and Write and Retrieve. To help teachers use the procedures with ease, I created a bookmark that acts as a “cheat sheet.” The Teach a New Sight Word Bookmark is found on the Resources page under the Guided Word Study file.
