Sight Word Activities for Literacy Centers
Sight Word Typing: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.Sight Word Magazine Hunt: Do you get any of the Scholastic magazines? These are a great way for students to “hunt” for their sight words. I let them use a Sharpie marker, which of course makes everything more fun!
Whole Group Games
Splat: 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. I love cheap and easy sight word activities!
