Introduce listening QR centers to increase students' pre primer sight word mastery. Students simply scan the QR code and listen to my voice first providing directions, then reading the sight word. I will spell the sight word the first time it is given; students search for the 'hidden' sight word and highlight or circle the word. At the end, if you allow, they may color the picture.
In my class, we often do sight word searches as a whole group where I call out the word, and students find it before I call the next word. All levels of my students are motivated by this and stay engaged in reading for these short periods of time.
Because of the popularity and effectiveness, I have implemented this activity with QR codes for independent practice. The QR code is a recording of my voice providing first, the directions, then reading the words. The first time the word is read, I spell the word to assist. If the recording is going too fast, students are welcome to pause the voice recording. Recordings last about 3 minutes, so this is a quick, but effective activity.
Each page includes 5 sight words, each of which is placed 5-7 times on the page. Within the 6 pages of searches are a total of 15 words (a, go, me, the, you, up, can, I, not, and, it, can, one, for, see), with each sight word appearing on two pages for repition of exposure to sight words.
