Whether you're a classroom teacher or a parent at home, you're in the right place!  

Learning to read can be challenging!  One reason for this is that all the words in our language don't "follow the rules" of letters and sounds.  These are often called "sight words" and they can present real stumbling blocks for young readers.  When such words aren't recognized instantly, it can interfere with fluency and comprehension.  

What if I told you a frog could help?

Introducing:

Testimonials:

“I have taught as a Reading Specialist for the past 8 years, and I am always looking for new ways to teach sight words to the lower-elementary students. Some techniques are extremely high-interest, but aren’t necessarily research-based.  Other techniques are proven to work, but the students lose interest because of the rote nature of the program’s presentation.  Sight Word Poems with Sidney is the first program that I have found that goes through every single sight word list, is high-interest, and is research-based.  Sight Word Poems with Sidney allows students to see all of the sight words in text, specifically in rhyming poems that are fun to read and easy to decode.  This gives authenticity and purpose to the sight word recognition.  The poems are leveled well, and the students always make undeniable progress from week to week as they go through new sight word poems/units...I highly recommend this program for its creativity and comprehensive nature.  The planning is done for you in detail and is research-based.  If you are looking for a way to teach sight words in a 30-minute block each day of the week, look no further!”  -Jessica L.

“I found Sight Word Poems with Sidney to be an effective way to learn non-decodable sight words.  It is methodically put together and targets the words which occur frequently in primary grade text, but which are not readily decodable for students.  A lot of thought and research was put into the selection of the words to be included.  The poems are fun and very kid-friendly!”        - Lisa S.
