Sight Word Line-Up
Marietta Canalizo, Kindergarten teacher
With this great transition activity, students get to practice identifying sight words as they line up.
To correctly identify sight words.
- Write sight words on 3"x5" index cards. (Make two sets) Tape one set of cards to the floor where the children usually line up. Place the second set in a colorful box.
- When it is time to line up, distribute the cards to each child or have them pull one out of the box. I usually do this when we go to the cafeteria and sometimes at the end of the day.
- Have each child read his/her card, show it to the class and find the matching word on the floor. If he/she cannot read the word, the class may help out.
- Collect the cards and place in the box for the next time.
I have found that if I forget to use the cards when lining up, the children remind me. They enjoy this activity very much.
