Sight Word Fun

Earlier this {school} year we were looking for new resources to use with our struggling readers to teach and reinforce basic sight word recognition.  One of our favorite purchases was from Scholastic.  It is called 10 Week-by-Week Sight Word Packets and it teaches the first 100 Dolch Sight Words . . . which are incorporated into every primary reading series.  You might look for it in the teacher resource section of your monthly book order.  

We loved the systematic approach that this book offered, but we felt like there were some ways that we could incorporate more literacy skills into each weekly packet.  So, we created  a little unit called Sight Word FUN that is based on the words in each packet and we posted it over on TpT

It includes flashcards for each list, an ABC order practice page for each list, a sentence scramble using the sight words for each list, a Guess the Word activity for each list, Connect 4 game boards for every two lists, Lightning Words for each list that we use at guided reading and at home to reinforce the words and a check list for teachers to record mastery of words is also included.  There are also directions for a few of our favorite sight word games that we play every week.

Here’s a little {sneek} peek . . .sight word fun {sneek} peek

We would LOVE to give one of these away.  Here’s what you need to do to enter the contest.

1.  Make sure you are one of our followers AND post a comment about how you would use this in your classroom.

For an additional entry you can . . .

2.  Blog about this giveaway and then post an additional comment with a link to your blog.

Check back on Wednesday, April 20th to see if you are winner!!!

  5. These would get lots of use in my classroom. Our kinders need to be able to read the first hundred words; while our firsties need to be about to read, write, and spell the words. As a looping teacher, this would fit both needs.

    Thanks for making this! I really do love all your teacher created materials. :)

  62. I am a follower on both sites. I purchased that Scholastic book also earlier this year and found that it was quite dry. Your packet looks fantastic. I would use it with my 4 kids who are still struggling with spelling their sight words. I probably would replace their morning work with this and then review what they have done in small groups. since I have so much else I have to do with them in such a short time.

  63. I would use this packet during literacy work stations. I would also send the games home for homework. I like to send a game home once a week.

  65. I follow you blog! Thanks for sharing this resource; I would use it during my AIS/RTI time in the morning. Most of my kids have mastered the Open Court list of sight words, but new words would be great for those who need a challenge. The OC list is only 34 words plus 10 color words. For those who have yet to master the OC list, I would use this resource to reinforce all that we have been doing already!

  101. Hi! Came across your site! After the first ten weeks, what word list do you use. I am currently in the progress of coming up with a sight word sequence to use with my kids because I do not like my districts sequence. With the common core, they are now supposed to know how to read and write all of their sight words. I was going to use the preprimer, primer and first grade lists and do 5 new words a week. Would love to hear more about what you do beyond the 10 weeks!!. Thanks!

  102. What awesome resources both here and on TPT! Thank you!
