    Write On! – Week 30

    Immy is well and truly on the road to learning to read, arriving home from school with her very first beginning reader last week! As I have shared previously, learning to automatically recognise high frequency sight words is an important part of this process as automatic recall positively influences reading fluency, which in turn aids clearer comprehension. Providing lots of opportunity for children to revisit sight words is important to the development of automatic recall but this repetition doesn't have to be boring, in fact the 50 sight word activity ideas included in this list are most definitely not boring! These fun and playful ideas include something for everyone - for those who like to be physically active to those who like a side of creativity with their learning, there's something for the child who loves a cognitive challenge and for the one who learns best through co-operative games - the list includes suggestions suitable for all types of learners. 50 Playful Sight Words

    Time Saving/No Prep/ Student-made BINGO boards Demonstrate how to make 2 lines down and 2 across, all the way to the edges. It doesn't really matter if the lines aren't perfectly. Just have them count their spaces to make sure they have nine. They choose their words to write in the nine spaces referring to your word wall. We play blackout Bingo until one student "wins". The prize is the privilege of reading all of their words to the class! Do it with letters, sounds, CVC words numbers.

    Zap It...a game I learned in grad school. Put high frequency words on sticks (these are foam sticks) and write zap it on a few sticks. The kids pull sticks from a container and read the words. If someone gets Zap It, all of the sticks go back in the bin.
