Research has shown that one of the most effective ways for students to grasp new concepts is through hands-on learning!
This Hands-On Sight Word Bundle is a teacher-tested, kid-approved resource full of engaging, rigorous, and fun hands-on sight word activities and games that you can begin using in your classroom immediately. The included activities can be used in the following parts of your day: whole group and small group instruction, warm up time, Word Work, RTI, Early Finishers Tub, independent practice, and even homework.
This bundle is 1500+ pages. It includes activities that correlate with Fry’s First 100, Fry's Second 100, and Fry's Third 100 Words.

Super Sight Word Readers (300 pages, 30 readers) - The Super Sight Word Readers can be used at small group, Word Work, RTI, or even for independent practice. Students can practice reading them over and over again until they become proficient.
Sight Word Clip Its (300 Clip it Cards) – Students must read three sentences and then clip the sentence that matches the picture.
Sight Word Mats (5 unique mats) – These sight word mats can be used with ANY sight word. They require students to identify and use sight words in sentences. If you laminate them, they can be used over and over again.
Search and Find (300 Search and Find Worksheets) – Students must read the focus sight word and then find that sight word in the jumble of words. The fonts and text sizes are all different to help familiarize students with different fonts found in texts.
Let’s Read Sight Words (300 Independent Practice Sheets) – Each of these sheets requires students to read the sight word, trace the sight word, decorate the sight word, read sentences that include the sight word, and write their own sentence using the sight word.
Sight Word Cards (300 plain cards, 300 pencil cards, and 300 strips are included) – Perfect for your word wall or to have on hand at Word Work, small group, or one-on-one! These cards can be used with many of the activities found in this packet.
Hands-On Mats (300 mats are included): These sight word mats are great to have at your Word Work area. Students can use play dough, pipe cleaners, or pom-poms to fill each word.
Sight Word Sentences (300 sight word sentence pages) – Students will read the sight word and use it in a complete sentence. The lines are extra large to give students plenty of space to write.
Assessment Strips/Bookmarks and Assessment Sheets – (EDITABLE version included) – These quick assessment sheets and strips make assessing students a breeze. Students can assess each other OR you can assess students one-on-one. I provided you with an editable version of this so you can choose what words you want to include!
(This MASSIVE bundle is now EDITABLE in PowerPoint. This means you can add your own text to each of the hands-on activities. You will need to have PowerPoint installed on your computer in order to edit the slides.)
To access the new sets, you will need to go to “My Purchases” when you log into TPT and re-download this file.
