Conclusion After completing my 10-week learning support program with my students I documented a significant growth in the number of student identifying sight words and a positive change in student attitudes towards sight word practice and reading practice. This journey has had both unexpected and interesting outcomes, which has changed my opinion in a highly positive way. Reflecting on the journey, I was able to understand where I stood in relation to one-to-one learning support programs designed to help student development of reading and to see how this has changed.

Reflecting on the journey, I was able to understand where I stood in relation to one-to-one learning support programs designed to help student development of reading and to see how this has changed. Through this investigation I have identified that my previous stance on my topic was highly influenced from my personal experiences. Having researched and effectively implemented my learning support program, I believe I can now assist in educating and providing confidence to students who are learning how to read, remember or retain, and comprehend English words.

Previously, having these time constraints on the class was why the main classroom educators relied on parent contributions to help students practise and read their home readers. Even with the sight words and the readers going home daily and having parents help some days a week, students were not making any significant growth in this area of their education. Herein lies the problem: How can I make rote learning of sight words fun and memorable? From my own experience and previous research, I know how effective visual recognition of words can be in developing successful readers, but how to demonstrate this to 5–7 year olds is the challenge.
