I was so busy with other things that I missed putting up the week Facebook Fan Freebie. But to make up for it this weeks freebie is going to be awesome.
Kids roll their car over the sight word that they are learning. What a fun way for them to show that they've learned the word. You can find many other great ideas to teach sight words on my teaching sight words page.
On another note, I've reached the 100 likes on facebook milestone. Thanks everyone who has liked my page.
The pre-primer ghosts vs. vampires is now up for sale. For those of you who liked the game I now have a primer, first grade and second version of the game. All of these versions will be available for free until Wednesday.
Here's a new sight word file folder game just in time for Halloween. Ghosts vs. Vampires. Ghosts and vampires fight to see who is the scariest monster.
Dolch second grade sight word worksheets are here. These worksheets are a little more challenging then the ones for first grade and kindergarten. Students can color and write the words but they can also practice spelling them by covering and spelling the word, picking the correct spelling, and hunting for the word in a string of letters.
I've got a new sight word game for the Dolch Pre-primer list, Peacock sight words.
In this game kids get to practice their sight words by putting feathers on a peacock. Each feather has a letter on it so students can spell out their sight word.
The words included in this game are the Dolch Pre-primer words minus any one letter and two letter words.
The game will be available for free until Saturday so come and download yours quickly. I'm also planning and making Peacock sight word games for the Primer and First grade lists so stay tuned.
There are many more sight word game ideas on my teaching sight words page. You can also visit my shop to buy other great products.
So it looks like my summer is over. I got my first subbing call this year, and oh my goodness what a day it was. A class of 29 kindergartners, not even past their 2nd week in school. So not only do they not have the classroom routines down yet they basic school behavior down yet. One of the ELL students kept on trying to leave the room during class.
Luckily, I had some great para's in the room with me and a well written and detailed sub plan.
But Wow. There really shouldn't be that many kindergartners in one room.
Also, I had a request to make a set of First grade sight words from the Dolch Sight Word list. As always the first few days of its release I give my creations away for free. I do this in order to reward those who follow my blog either through facebook, pinterest, twitter, or the RSS feed. If you like this worksheets and need some for kindergarten you can go to my teaching sight words page to find more sets of worksheets.
The worksheets will be available for free until tomorrow, so come and download them quickly. The free give away is over. You can now purchase these worksheets for $3.50 at the shop.
The spy pigs sight word game is finally complete. In this game you give students one Spy-pig to decorate. Tell students that there are 5 different types of items that they can use to disguise their spy pig: Shirts, pants, sunglasses, hats, or other accessory.
Each of these categories has 20 sight words that students have to learn. So if a student can correctly read all 20 sight words within a minute they can choose something for their spy pig to wear.
If they wish to change what there spy pig is wearing they have to again demonstrate their mastery of the word list.
Or you can have them play this version as a way to practice sight words in a reading center:
Students take turns drawing a card. When they read the word correctly they get to keep the card. If they get three of the same kind (i.e. if they get three cards with sunglasses on them) they can choose something to put on their spy pig. They can also place something on their spy pig when they draw a Choose a ______, card.
In this type of game, you don't need to have students compete to win, they can just play to show off their style and creativity.
This game will be available for free until Friday when it will become available for purchase. The payed for version will also have black and white pages that your students will be able to color in themselves. (Plus you won't have to use all of your colored ink.)
The version of this game contains the words from Fry's sight word list 201-300. Other versions of this game including ones for the Dolch word lists will be coming out shortly.
The free give away of this game is now over. You can purchase this game for Fry's Word List 1-100, 101-200, 201-300, or 301-400 on my new Spy Pigs page. Each game is only $1.50.
I've been working on a new game for practicing sight words. I'm so excited because its coming out soo stinking cute.
When they have gone through and finished decorating their spy pig then the spy pigs can be put in a cute display. This activity can also be used for any other subject that you need to use flash cards for. So it's a very versatile game.
I've almost finished making all of the pieces for the game. I still want to come up with a few more tops and a set of different watches. I've also been toying with the idea of also having them choose a spy car for the pigs but that might just double what I have to do for this game.
The first few days after I finish it I will be releasing it for free. So if you want to be alerted when it comes available subscribe to my blog or follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest.
Tell me what you think of the upcoming game. I'd love to hear your comments.
