I am very excited about being given the opportunity to host a Bob Books: Sight Words giveaway. I have been a big fan of Bob Books since my oldest child learned to read. After such a great home experience with Bob Books, I started using them in my classroom with my students. They have been a valuable tool in helping my students learn to read. I'm looking forward to sharing Bob Books Sight Words for kindergarten and Bob Books Sight Words for first grade with TWO winners.
What are Bob Books?
From the #1 bestselling learn-to-read program comes two brand-new sets focused on learning and practicing Sight Words.
Sight Words are words that are recognized by sight rather than sounded out, in order to achieve reading fluency. They are the most frequently used words in the English language, and are often unable to read phonetically ("was", "are", and "out" are examples). Bob Books Sight Words feature the top Sight Words in two sets-one for Kindergarten and one for first grade- in order to allow parents and children to read, learn and practice easily and enjoyably.
Each Sight Words box includes 10 original books, 30 flashcards, and a parent guide. Soon your child will be saying "I can read the whole book!" (quoted from their site)
Be sure to visit Scholastic's site to find out more information about Bob Books. You can also visit The Bob Books site.
