Twenty-seven first-grade students at Fuller School were recognized as the newest members of the Sight Word Club at the February Pow Wow assembly. To become a member of the first-grade Sight Word Club, the students were required to memorize 100 sight words. Each of the new members received a sight word T-shirt and a certificate.
The Sight Word Club at Fuller School is a program that encourages students to learn to read sight words. Children need to be taught to read words as a whole unit, as they often have irregular spelling patterns and cannot be blended by sounding out the letters. These words are used frequently in books and stories written for children at their grade level. Students who can quickly read sight words become better readers, which plays a vital role in the success of their education.
Students receiving their sight word shirts included:
Room 15 – Mia Morales
Room 22 – Isaac Roque, Carsen Adams, Violet Price and Brylee Sanchez
Room 23 – Jeslenne Flores-Real and Andres Medina
Room 26 – Jose Rocha and Nathan Fuentes
