K5 Book 6 Up and Down Lesson Plan

K5 Book 6 Up and Down Lesson Plan

What we did ………

We are learning to read sight words and write our letters. We are focusing on sight words and writing upper and lower case letters for the next couple of weeks. We will be working on letter sound review, citizenship, math and our alphabet book at least once a week.

Prior to starting the lesson, you may want to visit the links to Amazon to find the items that I used.  I have alloted 2 days to learn the sight words and read the book.  Your child may need more time, that is fine.  These are work at your own pace lesson plans.

We are using Sight Word Readers by Scholastic which include 50 commonly used words.

I have created sight word readers flash cards for the 50 site words in these readers Free Printable. I printed mine on card stock, cut them out and glued 2 cards together and laminated 4 (8 words) per sheet.

This blog contains Amazon Associate links.  I receive a small percent of money for any items that are purchased from links on my blog.  Any product that I provide a link to, is a product that I use myself.  I thank you for your support.


Here is a link to my youtube, I have created a playlist of all the videos I am using for this lesson plan.

Today we learned up and down in the book Up and Down.


If you are going to create this book, you may want to pull the can and you flashcards.

I decided to create a go fish game using the sight words we have learned this far.
You will need to print sight word fish first 12 on plain or colored card stock (you may want to laminate after cutting out each fish) , large metal brads and magnetic fishing pole. 

I purchased a pretend play fishing set as I plan to create fish for math, reading and more.  He can also, pretend play with the fish in his small pool or bath tub.

You can actually play 2 games with these sight word fish.  Print 2 sets on colored card stock and play a matching game or add the metal brads to fish out the sight word.
Fishing game: 

  • print fish on colored card stock –
  • cut out each fish –
  • poke a brad into the eye of each fish –
  • call out a sight word for your child to catch with his magnetic fishing pole
