Dolch word list
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dolch Word List is a list of frequently used words compiled by Edward William Dolch, PhD. The list was prepared in 1936. The list was originally published in his book Problems in Reading in 1948. Under the copyright laws in effect during the time of publication, the Dolch word list is out of copyright.
Dolch compiled the list based on children's books of his era. The list contains 220 "service words" that have to be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in English. The compilation excludes nouns, which comprise a separate 95-word list.
Many of the 220 Dolch words can’t be “sounded out” using common sound-to-letter implicit phonics patterns and have to be learned by sight; hence the alternative term, “sight word." Although the list is divided into grades, for native English speakers, all the words in the Dolch should be mastered by the end of 1st grade

Reading Boot Camp is used during the first 20 days of school to learn the
basics of English literacy. We spend 120 hours reading, singing, articulating,
writing, and focusing on building the foundations in word and phrase knowledge.
I think the whole school should do READING BOOT CAMP; because I went from a 210 to a 234 (NWEA MAP)my reading lexile went from a 685 to a 1110 in 20 days ! In the morning we out what we call a speller. A speller is a book filled with, fluency drills, poems, national reading vocabulary and kung fu words, kung fu words are academic words by grade level we need to MASTER that are realy hard. Another thing we do is we sit in cop cars cop cars are when one chair is facing one way and the other chair the other way. We do cop cars so both partners could see the text. When we have time we go to 2nd grade classes like Mrs. Kirkendall's class .We also go to Mrs. Benoit's class we even sung a song with them and put it on youtube. We sing songs with them to help them read more fluently ,to help them read with expresion and to help them learn english. Mr.Taylor on the first weeks of school for homework gave us a book with realy hard fairy tailes.That is called the blue fairy book.after READING BOOTCAMP it made reading a book more easy. Another book we read is Because Of Winn Dixie..It's about a girl that just moved to a new place, doesnt have any friends ,that ends up meeting a dog that helps her meet friends. Mr. Taylor gives us all the same book to make sure kids are reading and so our partner can ask us questions and we can under stand the question is about. Are you wondering how we do our fluency test? What we do is we sit in cop cars..Mr.Taylor gives us one minute on the board .And we read the passage. At the end our partner tells us how we did on our words. Mr.Taylor gave us Ameracan juku to help us with our reading comprehension .Juku in Japan is like additional school to them. Vocabulary sparkle is another one of the fun things we did . Vocabulary sparkle is when Mr. Taylor gives us a word and we have to define so we know if we studied the word and we realy studied.We get it right we get a spice drop and if we don't we have to sit down. My favorite reward is Mexican pizza .Mexican pizza is a flour tortilla with cheese pepperoni and jalapenos .the only way you get some is if you work hard . Some songs we have learned are What the world Needs now and Across the universe. We put what the world needs now on youtube .If you think all of that was fun give reading boot camp a chance and tell everyone to do reading boot camp.
