Another one of our resources was featured in a really, really great corner of the web. Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational is a blog dedicated to providing at home learning resources to supplement in school learning. It is a treasure trove of resources for moms, teacher and homeschoolers alike. Every Monday they round up some of their favourite resources that can be used for home learning. This week they elected to feature our Sight Word Go Fish game. However, ours isn’t the only excellent resource they culled. So head over to the Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational blog to see the other great resources they found!
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!
