This gave me an idea for one of my favorite quotes: Take a picture of hands in family and hang under the quote: "Un homme est qu'il a fait, par ses mains voyons sa coeur." ( A man is what he has done, by his hands we see his heart.) -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"I bought 10 cent yellow lense free glasses and have the first graders wear them as I read the mini posters. They go to writer's work shop wearing the glasses...I tell them the glasses are magic and will help them write better...they love to play and imagine being great authors...Thanks to the creator of Sailing Through First Grade...She is amazing!"
This activity combines repeated practice writing the sight words, tracing and reading the sight words embedded in a sentence, and illustrating the sentence to show comprehension. This is an engaging way to help teach students sight words! There are 220 SIGHT WORDS in this bundle to provide students with a lot of opportunities to practice sight word recognition.
I wish the subhead were in a different color (I have trouble with blues/purples). Making your writing easy to read in a visual sense is important too! That said, I like what they wrote here: It's good advice. The "read aloud" test for good writing is an excellent one! (Or, in the case of writing headlines, do the "breath test." If you can't say it all in one breath: It's too long.).
