BRAIN-ercises Sight Word List 3 Exercise Activity-Students will love learning sight words with this fluency activity that will have kids yelling out sight words and exercising to some groovy music. Just press present slide-show and watch the fun happen. Your students won't even know they are learning.
POP! A Sight Word Review Game-Students will take turns drawing cards and reading the sight words from the cards. If they read it correctly, then they keep it. If it is read incorrectly, then the student will place the card in the discard pile. If the student draws a POP! card, then he/she will have to return all their cards to the discard pile. The student with the most cards at the end of the game, Wins!
I Spy Sight Word Find--Students will use a magnifying glass to locate all 25 sight words that are hidden on the next page. Then they will record their answers on the I Spy Recording Sheet.
Word Wall Cards/Flash Cards-There are 3 different sets of flash cards in this product. One that is cutesy, one that is plain but has color on it, another that is printer friendly. Choose the one you like the best. Included in here is an awesome list of ideas with directions of how you can use these flash cards to make learning sight words fun!
Phonetically Decoded Words-I make my students look for special letters, such as two letter phonograms, blends, digraphs, etc. Then we underline them and put one dot underneath. Next, I have students put a dot under each letter that makes a sound. Then, we say each sound, next sing the sounds together, then last but not least, we say the word the fast way. My students really grew into great readers when they learned how to do this. Use this if you like!
Say It! Trace It! Write It! Read It!-You have two options for this activity. You can print it out and use it as handwriting and sight word practice. Or you can print it on cardstock, laminate it and add a skinny dry-erase marker to make it an instant center.
