Thanks for perusing this product! Don't forget to check out the PREVIEW! :)
Included in this set are 6 different spinner combos (containing 1 sight word wheel + 1 color wheel) and 2 different recording sheets. Each sight word wheel contains 12 different sight words, meaning there are 72 different sight words included in this set!
The following words are included: up, we, to, be, and, go, at, in, have, my, it, you, will, so, of, are, but, as, an, him, his, has, had, was, your, what, she, said, one, many, all, from, its, into, with, when, see, do, can, is, if, the, on, he, no, by, for, like, this, they, just, look, then, there, did, get, not, that, or, out, come, over, down, our, know, were, back, each, how, very, who, & make
To assemble, I recommend printing each page on white cardstock or construction paper. Laminate all pages for durability. Using a precise paper cutter, cut each page in half while keeping the paper orientated portrait-style. When finished cutting, each spinner set will have 1 word wheel and 1 color wheel (as mentioned before). The simplest (and cheapest!) way to create functional spinners is to push 1 brass fastener (brad) through each middle of every spinner. Then, attach 1 paperclip onto each fastener. Voila! Quick and easy spinners! (NOTE: If the paperclip has a hard time moving, loosen the fastener a little to give the paperclip some “slack” and try to spin it again!)
I use these spinners during ELA center time. I have my kindergartners work in pairs with one spinner set. The first player spins the word spinner and reads the word aloud. The other player makes sure the word is read correctly! Then the first player spins the color spinner and writes the word in the color selected on his/her recording sheet (OPTIONAL: Sometimes, I get REALLY crazy and let my students use markers, colored pencils, or fancy pens besides boring old crayons!). Player 2 follows the same steps while Player 1 checks to make sure the word is read correctly!
This activity is a great way to get your kiddos practicing sight words. My students really enjoy it because it’s fun, played with a partner, and there’s definitely an “excitement” factor with the spinning aspect of the activity. They think it’s just a fun game, when in actuality, they’re practicing an important skill... SIGHT WORDS!
I hope you enjoy this as much as my students do! ☺
