I found these keyboards at The Dollar Tree a few years ago and instantly knew I needed them! Students simply draw out a sight word card and type the word. This gives them practice with keyboard skills as well.
Do you get any of the Scholastic magazines? These are a great way for students to “hunt” for sight words. I let them use a Sharpie marker, which of course makes everything more fun!
I love the idea of the game hangman, but I didn’t want to call it that in class. Instead, we played “build a flower”, “build a pumpkin”, “build a snowman”, etc. We played this game whole group, small group, and with partners sometimes. Students had fun trying to come up with a harder sight word that will trick their friends. 🙂
Have you heard of the game SPLAT? You say a sight word and the students have to smack the word with a flyswatter. I found this GIANT flyswatter at The Dollar Tree to make this more fun! Let 2 kids compete to find the word the fastest, for added excitement.
