We begin the year with Cloud Sounds. These are intended to be a review or what each child should know coming in to Kindergarten. Uppercase & lowercase letters with the sounds they make are covered in our Pre-K program. In kindergarten we do a short letter review and move straight to sight words. Our Clouds are broken into 6 levels, with 5-6 letters in each group. Once your child passes each level, they will move over to Rainbow Words.
I created our Rainbow Words by breaking the kindergarten report card sight words up into 6 lists. Starting with the "purple words" and working up the rainbow. Your child will work on an individual level as they progress up the rainbow.
For even more practice I created Star Words. These words are actually the first grade words, but hey we like to aim high in my class!!!
