Want to improve your students' spelling? Looking to increase automaticity with high frequency sight words? Word Cheers can do just that! Try this fun and engaging way to teach students sight words and word pattern words. Students will love saying the catchy, sing-song phrases as well as acting them out. A great way for teachers to provide multiple repetitions of hard to read and spell sight words. Excellent way to get kids moving throughout the day. Introduce spelling and/or word wall words with enthusiasm and fan fare! Perfect for providing intervention to at-risk and special education students without any extra teacher preparation. Great for transitions. Use these cheers and you'll see a definite improvement in your students' spelling and reading. Advertisers use jingles because they stick in our heads. These cheers will stick in your students' heads causing them to remember how to spell and create automaticity when reading. I have taught first and second grade and at-risk students. I have never had a student spell "because" incorrectly! Try it and see.
