Sight Word Fun!

Hi friends! Today I want to talk about a fun new way for students to practice those sight words.

As a K/1 teacher we all know how important sight word recognition can be. Working on those sight words is a big step on the path to learning how to read. The more exposure students have to these words,the easier it will be to help students get those words into long term memory.

Many learners think in pictures. I know for me a picture helps me remember something a lot more then reading it over and over again. So this week I was thinking up ways I could help my students practice and learn those sight words with pictures and created this new center!

Using the beginning sound of a picture students will then discover the secret sight word. Included in this pack are 90 sight words!

 To use this center I would laminate the activity cards for durability. Then you could also have students use the cards as a write and wipe station or they could use letter tiles, magnetic letters or any other letter manipulative you have in your classroom. 

Here is an example of what 2 activity cards look like




Using beginning sound and letter tiles they can uncover the hidden words. 





I will be using these in our literacy stations in a few weeks. You can see all 90 words that are included by clicking  {{HERE}}. I also put the pack on sale for the next 24 hours so, grab it quick for the discounted price!!

I would love to hear how you teach sight words in your classroom too! Leave a comment below with what you do to help build those kids into readers.
