Teacher friends, this is seriously the most fun and motivating way to practice sight words with your students EVER!
After assessing students over grade-level Dolch sight words, students are equipped with an individualized baggie of sight word flashcards of words (from this set) that they have not yet mastered. Students can practice these at any time (and they do!)
As often as you are able, pull students back with their flashcards to check their progress. If they can read the word correctly without hesitation, mark off a number (1-5) on the card. After the fifth time reading that word correctly, they have obviously mastered it.
That’s where the FUN PART comes in!!! Once a card has had all of its numbers (1-5) marked off, they get to DESTROY THE SIGHT WORD...literally! Some students crinkle it up…step on it…rip it to shreds, whatever they choose to do to show they have mastered/DESTROYED that sight word. So fun and so motivating!
This set includes flashcards for all Dolch 1st grade sight words. It also includes directions for use, a word list, as well as a parent letter.
I hope you enjoy these flashcards as much as my students and I have! Go ahead and DESTROY those sight words!!!
