I've been working with a First Grader on her sight words.
To add a bit of fun,
we put together a sight word puzzle together.
First, I wrote all the words on a blank white,
cardboard puzzle board.
Then, I lightly colored 5 different colors over the words in irregular blobs with a crayon. These background colors help when you reassemble the puzzle together. I didn't want my student to spend too much time just trying to put the puzzle together again.
What I wanted was to have fun, and talk about the words as we reassembled the puzzle.
" I think we are making the word, GOES. Here is the GO... how does it end? Yeah... let's look for the ES to finish the word."
I did provide a list of the words, in ABC order, to look at while we were putting the puzzle together.
I would be a great way for a parent volunteer to work with your students... and have a bit of fun too.
