Use this poem (my original work) to teach the following sight words: About, I'm, Back, After, Away, Been, There, and One. We use this routine in our classroom with our poems:
Day 1: Choral read the poem.
Day 2: Choral read the poem and highlight the sight words.
Day 3: Choral read the poem and have students fill in the sight words.
Day 4: Choral read the poem. Have students cut out the sentences and arrange them correctly.
It's an easy short 10 minute routine to add to your day and an effective way to teach sight words whole group. You'll find your students saying it to themselves by the end of the week!
