Rainbow Awards

It is extremely important that students in kindergarten learn their sight words.

Sight words will help students develop better phonics skills, word recognition, spelling and writing and writing skills. It develops confidence when a student can read the words in simple sentences.

Each month, students are given a set of sight words to remember by sight. The words are color coded by using rainbow colors. At approximately the end of each month, each student will be tested on the color sight word of the month. If a student can read the words in 3 seconds or less, than the student will be taking home a crown that shows that he or she passed the test. Students will be recognized at the Rainbow Words Awards assembly the following week after they are tested. The student will receive an award certificate and color bracelet as a reward for knowing the words of the month! Please work with your children nightly, and make it fun to learn the words!
