Happy Friday Fabulous Friends!!!
I'm sitting here on the couch just finishing up a small project to post for y'all today.
My husband and I are currently trying to sell our home, so we are having some back splash put into our kitchen today. Therefore, I've got some free time as I sit here while the men work. Breck just also went down for a nap. Lately his naps range from 30-50 mins. BUT this morning he had an 1.5 hour nap! So, lets hope for another long one. Let's see if I can finish this post before he wakes up!...doubt it.
Now, about that product I just finished for y'all!
Sight Word Student Flashcards!
As we introduce and work on sight words, I give my students little individual flashcards. They color in the letters and put it into their clear ziploc baggie to practice during their free time. Something cool that my students brought to my attention was that they could build sentences with the words since they were not all together on a ring. My one student was like, "Hey, Mrs. Wizeman! I can almost make a sentence!" and he had them laid out on his desk and read me a phrase. It was a major DUH moment for me! I'm so glad that I had chosen to give them sight words this way! Love it!
SO basically these packs are the Dolch sight word lists for Pre-Primer, Primer, and First Grade. Each pack includes a checklist of the words and a page for each sight word. On each sheet is a total of 24 words to be cut apart. I just copy the word on white cardstock and cut. Then they are ready to go!
When I had my students color in the word, I just let them color freely. Some of you might want them to color the vowels red and consonants blue, or color them to focus on blends or vowel patterns. There are so many options when it comes to coloring the words. I taught kindergarten last year, so like I said, I had them color freely. This year I am back in first grade and I will most likely be adding some purpose to the coloring of the words when and if it matches what they've been learning.
I also have students practice their words. If they know the word within 3 seconds they put it into one pile. If they don't know the word quickly or have to try to sound out the word, they put it into another pile. This helps them realize at which words they are masters and on which words they need to work.

Glad y'all stopped by! Enjoy your weekend!!
