Today I thought I would share two of our latest and favorite sight word activities. I like to rotate the sight word activities; which means I try not to repeat the same one two weeks in a row. I will use the same list of words, but perhaps a different word order. You may have seen this image last week on my Facebook page.
I placed the sight words we have been working on in the word work center. Students sifted through the tub of beads, found the matching letters then they had to bead, trace and write.
The beads are from Lakeshore Learning
Another center we have been using is the play-doh center. At the beginning of the year I let them just play with it and have fun. I showed them how to roll it between the palms of their hands to make it into a long snake to form letters and numbers and how to roll it into balls to make the dots on a ten frame. I wanted them to get the playing part out of the way so they could focus on word building during word work time.
In this center they were working on forming letters or words. Usually it is just one or the other, but this week I put in a mixture of a few sight words and a few letters that could build some of our sight words
You can find all of these in my TpT store.
I have the most amazing play-doh recipe. It really will last all year long if you keep it in a container. I keep mine in a ziplock bag. You can get the recipe here in my post Play-doh Fun for Everyone
If you have some favorite sight word activities please leave a comment I'd love to hear about them.
