Looking for a fun activity to add to your Sight Word lessons? These cut, paste and spell activities have become a weekly staple in Kindergartener teacher Maria Manore’s classroom. Maria is currently offering 100 Sight Word Activities on Educents at a discount. That’s 100 weeks of printable, no-prep activities to have on hand!
We took Maria’s “I can help at school” Sight Word Unit for a spin. Any reason to stop working and start coloring is a good reason, right?
Creating a booklet for each Sight Word is a very useful tool for Kinders and First Graders. Not only are students learning while they create the booklet, but they can also keep their booklets to refer to each time that word comes up that week.
Check out this snippet of Maria’s blog post about the Interactive Sight Word Readers and learn how to use them in your classroom or homeschool lessons!
Here is a peek at “When I am 100…”
The title of each book displays the featured sight word in bold bubble letters. My students always color this word. I like that it makes them really pay attention to all of the letters while they color (the time this requires makes it a more effective method of studying the letters than simply tracing the letters).
Each page inside of the book contains a predictable sentence with the very-important featured sight word missing from the page. See those boxes? Students cut out letters, unscramble them, and paste each letter into the boxes on the page. A cutting sheet with all of the scrambled letters is also included in the pack.
Once the letters have been glued into place, it is time to color. This particular book contains Melonheadz graphics so you just KNOW how fun they are to color.
Once the book is complete, it is the perfect addition to my students’ book boxes.
