Sight Word Graphing - good idea, can adapt for more difficult words and get a newspaper article or a page from a book/story and have them go through and graph how many times the sight words occur from the article/story.
Making 10! great idea! First Grade Smiles Done as partners ~ Each student had ten cubes of one color and a blank copy of the chart. As a class, traded one color cube with our partner and colored in our chart to match. Fantastic to reach all learners: oral, visual, kinethetic, tactile.
