Do you need a more FUN and CREATIVE way to teach your students sight words? That’s where this Daps & Slaps: Dolch Sight Words resource comes into play. All you need to do is print out the set of your choice (), cut, and laminate. Then pin a few onto your wall, door, door casing, entryway, etc. and have your students go through the Daps & Slaps motions while saying their sight words out loud. Combine the hands and fists to make it like a secret sight word handshake!
Another fun way to use these in your class is to print out multiple copies and make it a matching game, go fish game, or slapping game! Possibilities are endless! Let me know in the feedback below how you’ll be using these in your class!
“Daps” is another word for fist-bump. The student will close their fist and hit it gently against the fist on the card.
“Slaps” is another word for high-five. The student will open their hand wide and gently slap their hand on the card.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not pin these cards against anything breakable! Younger kids are still learning their own strength! As students go through their daps & slaps motions, make sure they don’t hit so hard they hurt themselves!
