Sight Word Ideas

Sight words are a frequent focus in our classroom. Some kids come in knowing so many while others can't even remember 'the' or 'a' even after repeated practice! I'm constantly trying different things to help all my little friends learn more words each week.

One game my little readers love day after day is Oops! I think there are several different ways of playing this game, but I listed below the way we play in our room.  My friends are always super engaged during this game even when it isn't their turn to pull a card. This game brings lots of giggles to our classroom and I love it just as much as they do! Best part- it actually helps them learn their sight words. :)

Magnetic letters are another must have in any primary classroom! Whether you use an iPad for electronic magnetic letters or real ones, I highly recommend them.  I listed below a few ways that magnetic letters can be used with partners, in centers, independently and with a teacher. Nothing too fancy at all, but my kindergartners and 1st graders all love our magnet strips and the chance to make words. I hope yours do too!

Have a great day!
