Select up to fourteen sight word mirrors per activity time. Students are given a recording sheet and small mirror. Students use the small mirror to create a reflection, allowing them to read the word. The word is then recorded on the recording sheet. When all mirrors have been filled, students read their sight words to a friend or teacher.
This is an absolute winner with my class! They love it! A great independent literacy activity.
