Rooted in Research
Written by three professors of education, the Essential Sight Words Reading Program incorporates research-based strategies throughout its easy-to-use system. The 200 words at the core of the program represent the most frequently-used words in the English language according to both the Kucera and Francis word list and the Harris-Jacobsen Short Readability Word List. Instructional activities have been carefully designed to give students varied and repeated practice in identifying, understanding, reading, and writing each word. The books use carefully controlled vocabulary and realistic illustrations to help struggling learners read successfully and fluently.
The instructional process involves five easy steps:
- Instruction through Guided Worksheets
- Mastery Test
- Successful Reading with Books
The program is divided into two levels that teach 100 words each. Level 1 is intended for struggling readers of any age. Level 2 builds on Level 1.
