High Frequency or sight word practice to improve oral reading fluency (rate). Designed for students in the mid to end of year of first grade.
This WebQuest was designed to allow students to use technology to review and learn the Dolch Sight Words. Sight words are a key component for oral reading fluency. As you know sight words can be very difficult for some students to learn. This WebQuest will allow them to practice in new and fun ways that hopefully they enjoy and get motivated to learn. It is intended for first grade students in the middle to the end of the year. It could easily be adjusted to use all year long by changing the evaluation rubric to require less words to be read/recognized.
