Discuss with students that irregularly spelled words must be memorized because you cannot sound out each letter in a word. Remind students that by memorizing these irregularly spelled words you become a better reader. Have students find the irregularly spelled words by dragging the objects to their matching words. Then ask students to circle the correct spelling of the given words and then place them into the sentences given. In pairs or as a class, ask students to mark which words are spelled correctly. Review the words given and remind students that the reason they are memorizing these words is because they cannot sound out the word by saying each of the letter's sounds.
Students are given 10 questions in which they are asked to select which of the given words are spelled correctly as well as questions in which they are given a sentence and are asked to fill in the blank with the correct spelling of the given word.
Remind students that by memorizing these irregularly spelled words, or sight words, they become better readers, since they cannot sound out these words.
