This is a fun soccer themed activity to help keep kids motivated as they learn their sight words!!!
Each student is given a paper soccer ball copied onto color paper that coordinates with the list of sight words they are working on. They will be working on 20 words at a time, Once they read those 20 words in the time determined by the teacher, they get a sticker on their soccer ball. After they have collected all 5 stickers, they get a Sight Word Champion certificate! Then they get the next list of words with a new soccer ball.
The soccer balls could be displayed on a bulletin board titled "Reading is the Goal!"
This way of assessing sight words keeps students motivated and allows the teacher to easily differentiate.
Included in the kit:
-The first 6 lists of sight words. (Each list has 5 groups of 20 words.)
-Soccer balls for the students
-A class recording sheet to keep track of student progress.
-Six different certificates for students who master a list.
