We always feature one of our basic sights words as the “Word of the Day”. 

Students pick up a worksheet as they arrive each morning and complete it independently.  This quick activity reinforces proper letter formation, spelling, sight word recognition and the mechanics of a complete sentence.

  3. I bought this and I am using it this year. I love how it has the students write a sentence because I don't think the Houghton Mifflin series has them write enough. I do wish there were more Dolch words because we test on those words and use it for data, data, data. We have been in school for ~ three weeks and my class completes a page every morning. They are into the routine already and I have already seen great improvement in their grammar.

  4. This is such a perfect activity for starting each day. We use Houghton Mifflin, so I can definitely use it. I also love your Word of the Day bulletin board. GREAT ideas!
