 My soon-to-be Kinders have been working so hard this summer during guided and whole group reading on their sight words! I created a set of matching pocket chart stories and little books just for them! 
We practice the words with flash cards first, 

Then we read the story in the pocket chart, and match up the pictures. During this time I teach them important reading behaviors, such as one-to-one correspondence, using the beginning sound and picture to help them, and looking all the way through the word if more than one word starts with the same letter.

We fill out an accompanying worksheet filling in the featured sight word, then reading the completed sentence before coloring. This gives them a lot of practice with one-to-one correspondence and reading their sight words for fluency.

and finally they get their very own little book that matches the pocket chart story! They trace or write the sight word on each page, then read the sentence before coloring the picture. Again, a lot more practice with the words, one-to-one correspondence, and fluency!
