    Sight Word Visual Goal Setting Idea: Students learn sets of words which are color coded on their word ring and on the word wall. When they have mastered those words, they simply add a scoop to their ice cream cone and add the next set of cards to their word ring. The children are so motivated by adding new words onto their word ring, they forget they are learning!

    learning sight words - great incentive! Ice cream party at the end of the year!

  • Hailee Green

    color coded sets of sight words. when a student learns the set, they earn that color ice cream scoop. ice cream party at the end of the year to celebrate. could do something like this on a sheet of paper to put in data binders (they just color it)

  • Katie Van Slyke

Guided Reading strategy checklist

This is such a great idea from A Cupcake for the Teacher. It's a word work activity that can be used to practice writing sight words or spelling words. It's called rainbow roll-n-write and it's a FREEBIE!

"As a kinder and 1st project we read the book The Dot. A cute story about a little girl who discovers art through a simple series of dot paintings. The students were able to paint their own dot, or not-a-dot, with watercolors. This was a nice simple opportunity for students to use paints and learn the expectations for using watercolors. Ask them why brushes don't like bad hair days!"
