If you are looking for a language arts activity that utilizes fine motor control, sight word reading, and kinesthetic learning this is for you!
I have created a variety of sight word hunt recording sheets to help your students learn to read and write their sight words. This packet contains 25 different themed recording sheets that will be able to take you through the entire school year!
Each recording sheet showcases 10 numbers and blanks provided for writing in each sight word. I prefer using our school’s dicut machine to dicut 10 shapes that correspond to the theme of the worksheet.
(For example, if the theme of the worksheet is apples, I would dicut 10 apples out of construction paper. On each apple dicut, you will want to write one of the numbers 1-10 and the sight word of your choice on the front. I laminate these to help prevent the wear and tear from year to year. Then you’ll want to hide the sight words around your classroom by hanging them up with tape.)
Hand out a recording sheet to each student along with a pencil and clipboard.
Put a timer on so students know how much time they have to search if you prefer. Otherwise, let the students roam around the room recording the sight words they can find along the line next to that number! The kids LOVE searching like detectives for these words and gets lots of practice in writing them. Students also have practice reading these words when they help out other students who are looking for a particular word! When they have found all 10 words you can correct whole group or have students turn it into the finished work basket.
