This packet includes 6 different types of worksheets and activities targeting sight words recognition:
1- Rainbow Sight-Words: This activity is designed for practicing sight words (and letter formation) by tracing sight words on a colorful sheet- each word in one of the three primary colors. An extension activity that goes along with this center could be to have the student compose/ copy/ dictate a sentence for each one of the three words.
2- Roll a sight word: This product includes 20 pages of the game “Roll a sight word” with 77 of sight words. In addition, there is a blank page that can be used by the teacher to add other words that are topic specific or words for specific targeted practice.
3- Word wall hunt: This activity allows the student to practice writing words from the word wall in a fun engaging way. For each word the student must find other words that start with the letters of the target word. Ex: the target word is “about” so the student must find a word that begins with “a”, another that begins with “b”, another that begins with “o”, etc.
4-Spelling sight words: This activity is designed for practicing sight words spelling practice. The student is expected to copy the sight word (each letter in a box). It can be easily adapted for students who are not writing yet by using the letters at the end (the teacher would paste both the word mats and the letters on cardstock, cut, laminate and add VelCro in back).
5-Crossword Sight Words: the students get the opportunity to practice writing sight words in a fun engaging way: once across and once down (like in a crossword puzzle).
These include can be rotated in a literacy center during the year for practicing sight words in fun engaging ways. The large print, defined space for each letter/word, and the absence of distracting graphics are all purposeful adaptations for learners with special needs.
6- Pyramid Writing- Sight Words: In these worksheets each word is written so that every time one letter is taken off. For example, the word “and” will be copied first: “and”, then one letter comes off so the student will write “an”, and last one more letter comes off and the student will write just “a”. The student will have the opportunity to do this twice: once when the whole word is at the top of the pyramid, and once more when it is on the bottom.
