Word wall center children read the word to a partner, then build the word with the magnet letters. This is made with a large oil drip pan from an auto parts store:)

Easy.. Create each child's name on computer, put inside a sheet protector....when making their name-----make first letter green..green means go.. Last letter red.. Red means stop. Provide lots of capital and lowercase letters to manipulate. Write your own name or a friends name

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly- I love using the syrup bottles in the shape of the old lady and the word building in this post. Awesome!

Each student comes up and picks a stick out of my hand; they have to place the word in the right cup. Then, after all sticks have been sorted, students can choose one stick from each cup and create a sentence using all three words. A great informal assessment!

Story bags. Fill bags with random items, have the children use them to come up with a story. How fun and using lots of imagination.

How I Got 18 out of 23 Kids to Master 100% of Their Sight Words

Make a slide show and share with parents for practice at home---kids will beg to see their classmates and then parents can quiz for reading the sight words (*Take a photo of each child holding a sight word. Create a power point with the pictures and use it to drill students.) ALSO--- you could get teachers, principals, office staff, custodians, cafeteria workers, coaches, etc. to have their picture taken holding a sight word card---I bet the kids would like to show their parents that too!
