Sight Words A Literacy Unit Grades K-2
Ra;onale for Technology Integra;on
Sight words are something that all students will use, especially those in the younger grades K-2. Sight words are words we see in our everyday reading and wri;ng. They include words such as: the, a, is, of to, and, I, you, that. These words are used very frequently and can be hard for students to sound out or for them to illustrate in their heads. Because these types of words cannot be illustrated, technology is important for students to be able to hear the word and to do ac;vi;es with them on an Ipad or computer. Technology games can be very useful in helping students understand the word and being able to hear it out. By integra;ng technology, students will be able to see the word, hear it, and prac;ce wri;ng it as well as using it in sentences.
