(Print the first set of words. Copy and cut
so that each child in your classroom has a set. Punch a hole in
the top corner of the set and attach it to a ring. Send the set
of words home with the students for practice. After practice,
collect the set of words and assess the students individually.
Use a "cutsey" hole punch to designate which words the student
has mastered. Proceed to the next set of words as needed.
This is a good parent communication tool as they can see which
words their children were able to read to the teacher and which words
their children need to practice. Also, children get excited about
getting their words "punched." For continued challenge, proceed
to first grade word rings!)
