Practicing the Dolch sight words is an essential, but often tedious task for children to undertake. Why not make it fun for them? This file contains all of the first grade sight words on colourful hands that can be cut out and laminated. Each week choose two sight words that you will be focusing on. Place these two hands on either side of the door entering your classroom or coatroom. Each time the child goes through the door, or into the coatroom, they can give the word a big "high five" and say the word. You can choose whether they say, whisper or just mouth the word depending on what volume level you are comfortable with. This could also be used as a great literacy center.
All kids love to give high fives, so the motivation level to practice their words many times a day is high. I have had huge success with these in my room. Give it a try and see their sight word recognition soars!
I also have all of my Dolch sight word packs bundled for only $3.50. You can check it out here:
