This huge collection (217 slides) displays the Dolch sight words one word per slide. There are five sets in the PowerPoint file: PreK, KDG, and Grades 1, 2, 3. For example, slides 1-41 are the PreK Dolch words, slides 42-91 are KDG Dolch words, etc. Each set of grade level words appear in a different color (so that the teacher knows the grade level of each slide based on the color of the words). The words can be used in a variety of ways, including:
• Place students in a circle around the room. Start at the beginning of the file, showing one word at a time. Each student reads a word until a word is missed—then student sits down (similar to “Sparkle”).
• Copy each grade level separately on CDs (to produce five different files). Student chooses his/her level of words to review independently in the “Computer Center” or for free time.
• Students may choose words to alphabetize, write sentences, illustrate, spell with a buddy, build their own sight word booklet, read to a friend, etc.
• For an advanced activity, have student find magazine pictures to represent a list of words.
Any slide is easy to change/delete, or add additional slides as you wish! Have a great time!!
