Sight word pointers! Each child chooses a pointer and looks for that word as he/she is reading a book! These ones were printed on colored cardstock, then taped to straws (perhaps popsicle sticks would make them sturdier!)
Debbie Diller on Word Walls.... 1. Make a border or grid for the letters/words. Based on research, the brain sees in borders. 2. Make vowels and consonants different colours. 3. Add a picture for the beginning sound of the letter. 4. Make the words on the word wall black and white. Words are easier to see and it is a common color for words in print.
