Preschooler Sliding Sight Word Reading Cards: Part 2

A few weeks ago I posted my Preschooler Sliding Sight Word Reading Cards. We are deep into homeschooling and using an amazing iPad program called Learn with Homer. I wanted to reinforce what she learned with the app so I created the sliding cards. It makes it easier for her to focus on one letter and one sound at a time and then she puts it together and reads it. I love this method of reading because she has become so independent with reading and doing the lessons herself.

Last week she went through a little stage of not wanting to do "Learning Time" so I just took out the cards whenever we had a free moment. I gave her a little break from new lessons and worked on getting the cards I made for her in the first round right. When I was confident that she knew these words we continued the lessons on the app. Here are second batch of words that she learned.

Sliding Sight Word Reading Cards 
Step 1: Download the template files and print out the files using the "fit to page" option.

Step 2: Cut out the letter strips and set aside. Cut out the slider on the solid black lines.

Step 3: Fold over on the dashed lines. Put a little bit of glue on the folded sides and then place the rectangle part on top carefully lining it up. Press down firmly and allow to dry for at least an hour before using.

Step 4: Insert one letter strip and show the child how to pull out the letters one by one and help them sound it out.
