    fun sight word idea

    i was looking in my craft bin earlier this week when i came across glitter glue. i decided to write sight words on index cards with the glitter glue...and the kids LOVED it! we did a variety of things with them after they dried. in my lowest group, the kids traced the letters as they said them aloud, and then ran their hands over the whole word as they said it three times. in my highest groups, the kids would close their eyes and feel the word, trying to be the 1st to figure out what it was just by feeling. on friday, i sent those cards home with one of my kids who was still struggling with them, and i let another child make her own to take home for practice. it worked so well last week, i have already made new ones for our words this week. my child who has been getting a 0% on sight word tests for what seems like forever (you might remember my post asking for more ideas when i mentioned the millions of things i already do)...she made a 60% this week - got 3 out of 5 words correct!!! yayyyy!!! just thought i would share. :)
