This list indicates when the high frequency words are first introduced in the decodable books and this coincides with when they appear on the Sight Word Turtles.
However, because I only assign five words for homework each week and sometimes ten or more new words appear in the decodables, sometimes there are words here that are not on the weekly homework sheets. I try to prioritize words and introduce the most important ones first. Those in excess of five per week are assigned on the homework sheets later when there are fewer new words to learn.
You can, however, expect students to learn these words through repeated reading of the decodables and their appearances in dictation and blending. For that reason, they are still included on the sight word turtles.
