By this time of year, we have assessed students and determined who would benefit from intense intervention with sight words. I created this “kit” to give students additional practice spelling and then reading sight words in context.
Prep: Print the sight word cards, laminate and cut apart.
Place cards and recording sheets in a center tub.
How to play the game:
Students place the cards face down, then take turns drawing
cards until all words have been traced or colored on the
response sheet. (these cards can be sorted into sets for each
week of lessons 21-24 of Journeys, or they can be sorted to fit
your own sight word order).
I highly recommend organizing and printing each week’s set into
a booklet. Students should make this part of their independent
reading every day, then keep the booklets from each week in
their tubs for review. I have found this highly successful.
Words covered in this set:
make, them, give, play, say
new, said, was, then, good
ate, could, she, over, her
all, when, some, he, away
must, no, by, there
