This package supports the kindergarten common core standards and includes:
-52 Sight Word Head Band Cards
-4 Activity Ideas
Directions for Activity 1: "What's My Name Again?"
All students place a sight word onto their headbands. The sight words replace their names for a chosen period of time.
Directions for Activity 2: "Mystery Word"
A student is chosen to come to the front of the room. A sight word is placed onto his/her headband. Students must give the chosen student example sentences with blanks to help him/her figure out the mystery word on the headband.
Directions for Activity 3: "Popcorn"
All students place sight words onto their headbands, after looking at them. The teacher reads a sight word from one of the cards. If a student’s word is called, he/she must pop up and then quickly sit back down.
Directions for Activity 4: "Hot Potato"
All students place sight words onto their headbands. The teacher throws a ball to a student. The class must say the word on that students card. The ball keeps getting passed around with the students reading the words with each catch.
1) Laminated sentence strips using velcro or paper clips for card attachments.
2) (MY FAVORITE) Purchase a class set of those cheap stretchy thin headbands. Students just slip the cards into them to hold them in place. You could even buy those cheap individual plastic containers from the Dollar Tree to separate them all.
