I have really big news to share today. Huge news, really. If you are a fan of my Best-Selling Interactive Sight Word Readers, this message is for YOU. Today I published my 100th Interactive Sight Word Reader and updated the Bundle of Books to include ALL 100 titles.
One hundred books! Can you believe it? I am still in awe of the popularity of these little books. When I first created them for my own students, I never dreamed that they would become such an essential resource in SO many classrooms. The sincere and heartfelt praise I have heard from other Kindergarten and First Grade teachers about these little books has truly filled my heart with joy. Thank you.

This day has been over a year in the making and I KNEW that I wanted the milestone to be special. I saved two very special books to be the 99th and 100th titles added to the collection. I am SO excited about both of these books because they are perfect for the season and will be incredibly motivating for young students. With themes to fit the Winter Olympic Games and the 100th Day of School, I know these are sure to be a hit.
(And how fitting is it that the 100th book in the collection is about being 100 years old?)
About the Books
Just in case you have been living under a rock and have not discovered my Interactive Sight Word Readers, let me show you what you've been missing! Here is a peek at “When I am 100…”
The title of each book displays the featured sight word in bold bubble letters. My students always color this word. I like that it makes them really pay attention to all of the letters while they color (the time this requires makes it a more effective method of studying the letters than simply tracing the letters).
Each page inside of the book contains a predictable sentence with the very-important featured sight word missing from the page. See those boxes? Students cut out letters, unscramble them, and paste each letter into the boxes on the page. A cutting sheet with all of the scrambled letters is also included in the pack.
Once the letters have been glued into place, it is time to color. This particular book contains Melonheadz graphics so you just KNOW how fun they are to color.
Once the book is complete, it is the perfect addition to my students' book boxes.
Now, I know I promised you a HUGE announcement about these little books so I won't keep you waiting any longer…
It's Here! An All-New Bundle
I have decided to begin a new chapter for my Interactive Sight Word Readers. The Bundle of Books will be capped at 100 titles and a new bundle is already in the works. The file has been getting so enormous on my computer that I often found myself wondering how to handle the tremendous size and value of the original Bundle of Books. I have been thinking and praying over this decision for quite some time (nearly 2 months if you can believe it). The reasons for the change are numerous and complicated. A few of the big reasons are that the file size is enormous and my very powerful computer often struggles with opening and closing the Bundle file every time I add to it. With a savings of 50%, the value of the Bundle of Books is undisputed, but the price has been rising and I just can't bring myself to charge more than $50 for a single product. I'm a teacher too and I know how precious a teacher's income is. There are many other reasons for the change, but I will spare you the tiny details.
The good news about the Bundle of Books, Part 2 is that this product is starting at an INCREDIBLY low price and (just like the original bundle) it will come with the benefit of free updates each time new books are added to the set. You definitely want to purchase it now while the price is low.
The NEW Look
PLUS, all new books will have an updated cover style so you can tell in an instant which bundle any individual book is located in. I am SOOOO excited for the new look. The style and formatting of the actual student books will remain the same. (Why change a classic?) Only the cover and teacher information pages are getting a facelift.
Ready to see the new look?
The Bundle of Books, Part 2 features:
ALL-NEW sight words
More non-seasonal books
More words from the First Grade Dolch List
More Integration of Math, Science, and Social Studies themes
