This fun activity is sure to engage those little brains as students race to pick a card, check it in the mirror, record it and go again! Each recording sheet is aligned to the sight word order in lessons 1-30 in the kindergarten edition of Journeys 2014. Students begin the year by playing the mirror game, but as the year progresses you may choose to differentiate the set by having students to use their brain to decode and write each word in the forward (correct) order. I have found that anything involving mirrors or magnifying glasses is always a favorite!
I recommend setting these up in file folders or large zipper seal bags that include the lesson's cards and a class set of recording sheets. Organize by lesson sequence (1-30), and you have an instant Word Work center aligned to the entire year's worth of lessons. I love having centers that are easy to switch out!
This set is perfect as a center to begin the first grade year as a review of the kindergarten sight word list.
