Dr. Connie Hebert helps kids, parents, and teachers by helping them become experts at catching "the teachable minute" anytime, anywhere! My Teachable Minute Blog offers quick tips on how to engage with younger and older kids. Comments, questions, and reflections are always welcome . . . let's catch a million teachable minutes together!

We have all seen and worked with kids who struggle with writing common sight words. Without a strong base of sight words in their personal bank of writing vocabulary, these kids continue to struggle and to attend to each and every action at a painfully slow speed. They simply aren’t able to focus on what they are writing because they are too busy trying to remember how to write? Writing words FAST is one way to build a bank of words that are automatic and easily retrieved by the child. This practice can be done with individual or with children in a small group setting.

For more ideas on how to help kids build a repertoire of sight words, see my book, Catch a Falling Reader (2nd edition) at http://www.conniehebert.com
