Pick-a-Box Partner Game:
Each player chooses a different colored crayon to use. Player #1 rolls the die and reads aloud a word from that column. If the player reads the word correctly, the player will color the box containing that word. If the player is incorrect, the turn is over. Player #2 continues in the same manner. Continue playing until all of the boxes are colored in. The player with the most boxes wins!
Using a color code, students color and cut out the sight words provided and past them on the correct mug of hot cocoa.
Roll, Read, & Trace:
The student will roll a die and read the word that is above the picture of the die with the matching number. The student will trace the word neatly in that column. (If your students have difficulty tracing the words, you may want to ask them to color the box with the word instead.) Play continues in the same manner until a word reaches the top. The student will then write the winning word in the space provided.
Fluency & Graphing:
Using a color code, students will read and color the given sight words. The students are then asked to read the fluency phrases and sentence on the page, highlight or color the sight words according to the color code, and graph how many times each word appeared. The students will practice reading the phrases and sentence to a friend several times to try to increase their speed.
Mixed Up & Fixed Up:
This cute little activity gives children practice with sentence structure. In this cut and paste activity, the students will cut out the words at the bottom of the page, unscramble the words by putting them in the correct order to form a sentence, and paste them in the boxes provided. The students then write the sentence neatly on the lines and draw a picture to go with the sentence.
