In my school in Victoria it is part of our assessment schedule to assess our grade 1’s to the oxford 100 most common words. I am not 100% sure if this is a department or possibly just our region or our schools initiative?

I would love it if there were resources using the Oxford word list too!! I find I don’t use some of the literacy resources on the webstite as they don’t have the sight words I am focusing on.

We have used a variety of sight words over the years but last year after our school review decided to use Oxford Sight Words throughout the school.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62307
Yes would definitely find this very useful! Our school has switched to that list too.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62308
Pheew, I was beginning to think we were the only school using the Oxford Sight Words! We moved to the Oxford List a couple of years ago for much the same reason and have had good success also. Some resources would be great.

Do you have sight word games based on the magic 200 words.

I have a year 1 class (SA) and we are going to use them this year too – seems the most current and relevant list. Haven’t planned on using any other resources with them – just the lists from their website to use as part of a home reading program. Would be interested to hear what others are doing and whether there are more resources. Thanks.

We’ve been looking at the Oxford word list as well and are planning on linking them with our spelling. The difference between Oxford words and other sight word lists is that Oxford are based on the most common words children use when writing, which is not necessarily the same as the essential sight words they need for reading.
So, if you do create some resources for them, we’d love it if they were linked to writing and spelling skills.

I used this resource for 4 years in early childhood, it might be of some use, and might be adaptable to the Oxford List, although some, if not all of the resources are in Adobe format, it still might be possible to change the words, etc.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62313
This is interesting – will look into how wide spread this is being used and will definitely consider adding them – thanks, …..
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62314
We are just beginning to use them this year. Resources would be great
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62315
We have introduced them into our school. We are in the process of converting all our old year 2 lists over to Oxford. Our year 1’s and preps use the THRASS list as it fits in with their programs.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62316
It would be great if you could make some resources using the oxford list. Our Principal encouraged us to use it last year as it is apparently the most up to date list and includes words that Australian children use most commonly in their writing. I’m switching to it this year.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62317
Yes please…. My school has been using these words to great success for a couple of years now. Some resources would be great…
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62318
We use the Oxford word list at our school too. WOuld love some Oxford sight word specific resources as well. For the other 2 people to comment you can get a few Oxford sight word resources from the Oxford website.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62319
Yes, we are using them at our school to as the main sight list across the school, resources would definitely be a great boon to my classroom.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62320
Yes I would also love some resources using the Oxford words, more and more teachers are now using them as they are the most relevant for Aussie kids!!!!
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62321
I used the Oxford word lists for my receptions and some year 1s who needed them, a great list to start with. I then moved onto the Bedrock words.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62322
Just waiting on response back from Oxford Press regarding use of copyright? Have to just wait and see if we can use them here – fingers crossed !
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62323
I am another who is using this list at school, and would love some resources.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62324
Some Oxford resources would be fabulous. My school is using them this year too!!!
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62325
There are a whole lot of resources on the Oxford website. Not as colourful as Donna’s, but still very useful.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62326
Our School in Perth is also starting to use them.
June 28, 2015 at 2:49 am #62327
OUr school is also using OXford words. Last year I printed too many of your Dolch bingo sheets (by mistake) and got the kids to write the word after I called it. It seemed to work well and I would love to do this with the Oxford list.

My school also uses them – was just wondering if there was an update on the copyright situation and whether you plan to include any resources for Oxford words in the future?
