This is the third of 11 sets of Gumball Words. I use this system in my classroom to help m students master their sight words. Each list is a different color gumball that they earn to put on their gumball machine. Students earn their gumball machine for mastering their letters and sounds. Every list they master, they earn a new gumball color for their machine, as well as a certificate to take home with their new list of words.
Included are 93 pages of word cards, games and activities to practice each list of 20 words:
