Directions and Contents of Product: This Smart Board activity set contains 20 Smart Board activities to enhance sight word recognition and spelling skills for the second grade. These activities use the second grade Dolch sight word list. It is a common core aligned activity unit for the Smart Board. These activities may be used during whole-group word work skills or independently in a literacy center.
The activities include: Two pages that have random word chooser which randomly choses a word on the list to be recognized. The class will love the speed and sound component in the activity, and the teacher will love the improvement in sight word recognition skills.
There are also four pages on the product that have interactive spelling games. The class will love the games because they are in the form of either a basketball, soccer or a tomato splat game. The students are given clues, they need do be able to guess the correct sight word. After they have figured out the word, there is a keyboard displaying random letters. They are to spell the word on the Smart Board and goals/baskets will be added to their score. This game may be played in teams or by an individual.
The last last pages have students graphing the sight words on the Smart Board. A die is tapped on the board and it will reveal one of the second grade words. The students are to graph the word on the board and this may also be exported into a pdf. file so that students may follow along with a worksheet. Again, this is an excellent activity for a literacy center.
