Now that your students have mastered, or made good progress with, letter recognition and letter sounds, it’s time to practice and strengthen sight word recognition! This packet would also be great for RTI, data collection, and progress monitoring". Keep the sheets inside of each student's data binder/folder, and take them out for parent conferences or important meetings.
Spin and Read is an interactive way for your students to practice this skill. Dolch words, from Pre-Primer up to the Third Grade are included in this packet; which means that this packet has the flexibility to meet your students where they are.
•Both the Pre-Primer and Primer lists only require students to read and color 1 to 2 words per spin.
→I broke both of these lists down into smaller mini lists to make them more manageable and age-appropriate for students. The Pre-Primer lists have up to 10 words featured at a time, and the Primer lists have up to 18 words featured at a time.
•Students whom are working on the First through Third Grade word lists have the opportunity to read up to 4 words at a time, as their spinners will have options for 1 to 4 words.
•A few of the lists have 1 or 2 words repeated so that the grids would not have empty spaces.
What your students will need:
•Print the packet, get several paper clips, and pencils and your students will be ready to show what they know in regards to their growing sight word vocabulary.
→You may allow students to color the words in with a crayon or colored pencil or highlight them with a highlighter (my students' favorite activity).
→If you need to save ink or are unable to make many copies, you could print a set of 2 packets, laminate them, and allow students to use the clear, colored chips to indicate which words they can read independently. Another option would be to place the lists in protective sleeves and allow students to use Expo Markers with them.
How to play:
Students will place a paper clip in the center of the spinner, place a pencil in the top of the paper clip, and then spin the clip with their finger. Whichever number the clip lands on will be the number of sight words that your student will read. If they are able to read the word, they will color it in or highlight it.
The activities will grow with your students. Not that many words colored in this time? That is okay. Place the page in your student’s work folder, cubby, portfolio, or other designated location. Take it out when your student is ready to show what they know again.
Activities can be completed:
•weekly or bi-weekly
•in stations or Centers
•with a Paraprofessional
•with a parent volunteer
•as additional practice at home
Allows students to:
•be more independent
•self-monitor their progress
•strengthen fine motor skills

•increase sight word recognition
•be a part of the goal setting process
•have fun while learning and increasing their sight word vocabulary
