Making Sight Word Practice fun can be a challenge, but helping students retain is even more of a challenge. This bundle are the methods I used to help my 1st grade students be the most successful.
This is a sight word wall, but it is way more than that. The students get a clip and they get to track their progress. We make it a game of who can get their pin across. The pins are anonymous if the child want it to be. As a class we celebrate we hoots and hollers each time a child moves to the next level. Students request to be tested, they ask parents at home to practice, and it is amazing how quickly they make a personal connection and strive to improve their score. It worked wonders on my class. Oh, and it is editable too!
This editable PowerPoint, will get your students on their feet and moving while they practice their sight words. It puts the word on the wall and gives the students an action to do with the word. For example, the word is "like" Punch the air and say "like" 5 times. This activity works great in a center, before literacy centers start, right after recess, on a rainy day, or leave for a substitute to use in your absence. I challenge you to do it with them.
Looking for something new? These Sight Word practice ideas give you 40 ways that students can practice their list. The advantage is that no matter what list students are on, they can do the same activity. These work well whole group, individually, or in center group. I even send them home with parents at conferences so that the students have ways to practice at home.
You may also be interested in my Narrative Writing Unit. This unit will help your students reach a new level in their writing and it is fully differentiated.
