Sight Word Party!

Hi friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and spending lots of time with your families. We just got back from Disney World and I am all sorts of exhausted.... bones that I never knew could hurt - HURT! 

Do you have a word wall in your room that you put your sight words on? For years my word wall was just a wall...with words....looking all pretty...with cute font....on pretty little laminated cards. We used it to help us spell words that did not follow spelling patterns and that was just about it. Last year, I had several struggling readers and needed something engaging to get them to use the word wall more. I wanted to have a variety of ways for them to practice these words and activities that could be used during word work time or even as an activity to do when their class work was complete. So, I created this Sight Word Party pack last year and we continue to use it this year. Here's a peek inside.  

 My kiddos love anything and everything that is Bingo! I wanted something that was editable so that I could change out as needed. These Bingo boards are all editable. Just click the box and type in your word list, or you can use a Vis-a-Vis marker to write your words on the board and wipe them off when finished.  It also includes the card template. 

3 different editable game boards are also included. Again, you can click in the box to type your words, or use a wipe off marker to write the words. 

All you need is dice and counters for the game boards! 

Do you love spinner boards as much as me? Goodness gracious I am a sucker for anything that can be made into a spinner game! There is just something about a paper clip and thumping that takes things to a whole new level of fun!

There are 2 spinner activities included. 

Spin a Word: spin the spinner - find a word on the word wall (or word list) that has that many letters and record. 

Spin and Write: spin the spinner - write a word from the word word like the number says. 

Throw some dice into sight word work and it makes it ten times better!

There are 2 dice activities included that are very similar to the spinner activities. 

A few more fun things going on at this party...

.....and a few basic printables such as ABC order and assessment pages. 

All activities include both full and half recording sheets to save on paper if needed. 

My kiddos last year and this year have enjoyed these activities. It's a huge time saver when I am needing something for them to do during word work. 

If you'd like to join in on the party you can find everything here!
