Sight Word Practice

Every week, my students have two sight words to spell.  These were this week's words:  from, are.  This is one way we practice.

I give the student's the word with each letter in a box:
They cut the word apart and mix up the letters:
(sorry about the quality of this picture, I uploaded it about 7 times and this is the best one)

Then they put it in the correct order:

I then have them chant spell it.
Clap and chant spell it.
Spell it in a deep voice.
Spell it in a girly voice.
Spell it in a goat voice.

We then mix it up several more times and spell it again and again chanting the spelling of the word.

Then I have them glue it in their journals and write it five times.




How do you practice sight words?  
Please share if you have some fun ideas.

  2. We get the body into it (a la vintage Cunningham) by practicing orally with hand cheers, too...Hands up for a tall letter, hands straight forwards for a "middle" letter and hands down for a descending letter...a great movement break combined with learning well loved by kiddos. :)
