Kindergarten Sight Words: April 2012

Each child gets a list, a clip board, a pencil, and one flash card (on a headband). Then the students roam around the room reading sight words. They draw a line from their peer's name to the sight word they read off their peer's forehead, until they figure out which one is on their own head. :)
