How to Assess Kindergarten Sight Word Recognition-Back to School Freebie

During the first few weeks of school I like to grab these little assessments during my guided reading groups just to see how much sight word recognition my newest learners have before we dive into our reading instruction.  I start with Pre-Primer words so that they are not frustrated and it makes a great starting point with my kindergarteners.  These sheets are typically used during guided reading to see how well my littlest learners can read and recognize words in sentences.
Other sight word recognition sheets are used during centers or during morning reading work to further assess each learner individually.
