When you introduce the sight word put (in Set 2, Book 8), you might want to use a brief object lesson. I usually point to the word and say something really brilliant like, “This is put. Say put.”
The child says “put.”
Clearly, we’re getting somewhere.
Then I put my pen or my binder (or both) down on the table*. “I put my pen on the table.” When I say “put,” I point to where I wrote the word on the page. I hand the pen to the student. “Please put my pen on the table” again pointing at the word. Lastly, I repeat the word and point at it.
*I know there are cool teachers out there that would have planned a whole craft or multisensory activity around this, but TRWBB is no nonsense because I am
not very fun boring simple that way.
