Sight Words - Make if fun!

Well, at this point in the school year I have really gotten to know my first graders as readers. I see how much it hurts some kids to not have a wide knowledge of sight words. Most of the time, my readers who don't have many sight words memorized, also don't enjoy reading very much, and they SURE don't like to use flashcards to practice these confusing words.

I've been collecting fun and engaging resources to help students practice recognizing common high frequency words. I want to share those resources with you. (That's what teaching is all about... beg, borrow, and steal!) Check out my wiki page for Sight Words by clicking here.

Come back to it often, because I will update it as I find more great websites, videos, links, images, etc. If you have something great to share, please post it in a comment for all to benefit from, and I'll add it to my page!

Here's one of my favorite sight word videos I learned about via Pinterest.

I have also found MANY fun games or literacy center stations, or send-home games via Pinterest. Check out my "Words" board!
