Help make learning sight words
, a lot more fun with this unique and interesting "Wizard of Words" packet.
Perfect for the beginning of the year
to launch excitement for word work, or use towards the end of the year
to reignite enthusiasm, so you can review and reinforce one more time.
These hands-on, engaging
and fun resources incorporate ALL of the Dolch words
for each of the 5 lists.
Use them for a whole-group review game, centers, early finishers, small groups, homework, Daily 5
So that no one is frustrated or bored, you choose the words students work on, which will target diversity
; allowing you to have multiple-level students working on the same activity, and following the same directions, while each child learns at their own speed and level
Students feel empowered
, while independence and self-esteem grows, freeing up the teacher.
This packet is targeted for the Dolch word lists, but because I’ve included blank templates
, you can program them for other word-wall sight words, CVC words, word family words, spelling words
These resources work perfectly with the Word Whiz
packet, the Magic Mirror
packet and the Feed the Wizard
