We have been connecting with bloggers all over the place these past few weeks and loving it. Last week you may remember our Halloween Bingo was featured on Teaching Blog Addict. Then on Monday our Sight Word Go Fish game was featured on the Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational’s Monday Roundup. Our recipes popped up on A Mommy Too! Then to make it even better last week we were also highlighted by Creative Family Fun’s A Week of After School Activities. Our On a Roll sight word game was showcased, and we couldn’t be more flattered. Head over to Creative Family Fun to check out the other resources they shared. There are some great ideas housed there!
We have talked before building early reading skills by mastering sight words. Sight words are a small group of words (approximately 300-500) that account for large portions of the common texts we read. For example, words such as: this, that, then, he, she, and etc are considered sight words. Due to their high frequency, it is critical that students cultivating early literacy skills develop their sight word recognition skills.
When it comes to building sight word proficiency I have previously shared my On a Roll game. I use On a Roll as an early finisher activity or as a literacy center. Today I bring you another game I often use in literacy centers or as a stand alone activity. Sight Word Go Fish uses the Dolch Sight words, and comes in kindergarten and second grade level words. In each download you will find detailed instructions on preparation and game play. Everything is available for download at my Teachers pay Teachers store!
