Looking for an interesting way to make sight words come alive? Look no further! This is a fun and innovative way to create an interactive word wall that will interest the student. Each week add two or three (or as many as you like) sight words to the classroom “Word-a-Pillar.” You can hang the “Word-a-Pillar” above the alphabet line, on a bulletin board, on a classroom wall, or on a classroom door. As the days in school and students grow so will the “Word-a-Pillar” and students sight word knowledge.
The set of words I incorporated includes sight words and high-frequency words.
"Sight Words" are words recognized very quickly without conscious decoding. Typically, they are very common words that sound differently than their spellings suggest, i.e. the, was, come, of.
"High Frequency Words" are the most common words in the English language and may or may not be decodable by their spellings. They include non-decodable words such as the, does, of as well as decodable words like at, it, and did.
