I haven’t blogged in a LONG, LONG time!
I wanted to do a quick blog post with some of the stations I have used to help my kiddos learn their sight word.
If you would like to see a breakdown of how I teach sight words over the course of a week you can click here.
You can see another version of this idea here.
This is always a hit with my littles. It is a super easy station to set up and it is effective.
I put the playdough mats in a sheet protector and binder so that the littles will have easy access to the words. These mats are available here.
Bottle Top Spelling
I like to write the words on one set of bottle tops then have the students pull letters to spell the word. This is a super easy center and easy to make.
I use these to assess during my guided reading groups. These are great to put in a RTI binder. Simple and easy assessment on sight word recognition. You can find these here.
I have noticed that my kiddos are weak with spelling their sight words and remembering them.
I have posted many times about how I do spelling. ( Click here to peep out how I teach spelling) In kindergarten we have weekly spelling test, boo, which are based off our sight words. For my kiddos this has been a constant struggle to get them to learn their words
The kids really enjoy this time and they get to be “silly” but they are still learning at the same time
Let me just say I am sorry the pics are soo dark. I am a bat and I hate having the lights on in my room! I forgot to turn them on before I started snapping pics!
