Well as some of you know, and some of you feel my pain, summer is over. Don't get me wrong... I love teaching, but aren't the summers getting shorter and shorter?
Well as we returned we found out that although sight words are not part of our curriculum, we must teach them. Well duh right? Anyway... I always have so I couldn't understand the teachers that were upset! I always have and the more I push them, the better my readers are! So I shared a few of my creations with my fellow teachers and they were so excited! The best part?? These products can be used prek-3 with no adjustments at all :)
First to organize what words I'll use when....
The sight word race consists of 30 lists with 10 words on each. I send these home each Friday for the students to practice for their test the following Friday :) What forms of practice do my students use you ask??
These adorable flash cards are labeled with the week to match the sight word race lists. They also fit the size of our sight word keyboard and our bingo game that are included in this pack.
The students absolutely love this! I have printed and laminated each child their own keyboard and when we are practicing each day they pull out their keyboards and type their sight words!
Among many games included in this pack is the sight words mystery bottles. All I use are empty water/pop bottles and add tiny flashcards and rice/noodle/glitter or whatever else I have laying around. When the students find a word they add it to the list :)
For bellwork/home practice students use the
I use these packets in numerous ways in our classroom! I have sent them home copied front to back (the backside one has to be copied upside down so that they can cut out the words on each side) so that they can practice 2 words a night before their test of 10 word each Friday.
I've also printed them into journals and bound them together for my students to use for bellwork. This not only works on independent skills, but also alphabetical skills. When you print the packet will come out in alphabetical order... not the sight word race order, so the students are able to find the words by learning alphabetizing skills.
Each day they practice handwriting, cutting, pasting, and creating skills. My students absolutely love them and ever since I've implemented these sheets I have seen a large increase in their memorization of their words!
I hope that seeing a little explanation of these products has intrigued you to check them out! Maybe enough to add them to your cart or at least your wish list!!
