Do your students need to practice reading sight words quickly? Are you tired of using flash cards for this purpose? If so, this PowerPoint might be the answer!!
In this PowerPoint, on each slide, students read a sight word from a dragon's speech bubble. The slides change quickly (every 1.5 seconds) as students read the words. Your students will be very engaged as they read the words on the screen.
This is a great way to engage a whole class in important sight word recognition practice. In less than 2 minutes, your class has practiced all 50 sight words in a fun, game-like atmosphere. It will bring some thrill to the typical drill practice that young students need to master sight words with automaticity and fluency.
Here is a list of the sight words included: the of and a to in is youthat it he was for on are as with his they I at be this have from or one had by word but not what all were we when your can said there use an each which she do how their if
My students beg to do this PowerPoint, and other similar ones, and I hope that your students do the same!!
Thanks for looking and happy teaching!!

You could record someone reading the word on each slide; I have never done this with these PowerPoints because I use them with the whole group and students read the words as the slides change. I have taken just a cheap microphone in my classroom and recorded students' voices on the computer on other things. It was pretty easy and the students loved it!! If you wanted to have individual students read different words and record a sound clip for each slide, it shouldn't be very hard. If you decide to do this and want some help, just let me know :)
Wow.. we have 90 sight words in my district, but I have never heard of 120!! If you would like for me to add the words, just email me a list. If you want to do it yourself, let me know that and I will send you instructions. It is not difficult to add words; it just takes a little while!! With 120 words, I would probably do 2 different presentations with 60 words each, so that the presentations don't get too long.
Thanks for your interest!
