This Rainbow Sight Word packet was developed to help motivate kindergarten level students to learn 121 sight words and high-frequency words. Included are all of the words from the kindergarten Journey’s series as well as the pre-primer, and primer Dolch Words. They are listed in order from the Journey’s series, with the exception of the color words, which are added first, and the Gold Words which are grade level Dolch words not included in the Journey’s series.
I created a large rainbow from bulletin board paper, laminated it, taped it together with packing tape and placed it at the student’s level where they line up several times a day. My students LOVED our rainbow and I found the students using the words on the rainbow all of the time! The rainbow was used by the students everyday. So much more than when I posted a word wall! I was amazed at how many students learned all the words!! This was by far one of the biggest improvements in motivating learning in my classroom! I just HAD to share.
Throughout the year, I developed games leveled by the rainbow color. Every day a time was set aside for them to choose a game to practice the color words that they or a friend were working on. I will post those games on TpT soon!
