In my class, we often do sight word searches as a whole group where I call out the word, and students find it before I call the next word. All levels of my students are motivated by this and stay engaged in reading for these short periods of time.
Because of the popularity and effectiveness, I have implemented this activity with QR codes for independent practice. The QR code is a recording of my voice providing first, the directions, then reading the words. The first time the word is read, I spell the word to assist. If the recording is going too fast, students are welcome to pause the voice recording. Recordings last about 3 minutes, so this is a quick, but effective activity.
Each page includes 5 sight words, each of which is placed 4-5 times on the page. Within the 5 pages of searches are a total of 15 words, with some words repeated for additional repition through the set.
Words used throughout these 5 sight word search pages: some, my, when, have, look, all, what, here, come, from, they, has, by, any, put
