Sight Word Sticks

One my kiddos FAVORITE center and/or Working with Words.
And the best part is- it is super cheap, easy to store, and FUN to play!
 What you need is clear cups, colored Popsicle sticks, and notepad paper. (I use the ones the size of post its, but without a sticky part.) 

First, write sight words on the sticks using a Sharpie and write the same word on the paper. They store nicely in baggies.

Then, set out the cups and insert the paper in the cups. Students read the words out loud and sort the sticks into the cups. 

I purposefully write a different word on different colors. Students can choose to sort the blue, green, yellow, etc. Because the words on different colors, they get each word at least once.BUT... another reason I do this... it is easy to do a quick check of the words... each cup will have one color stick in them each!

If you need some additional sight word help, this is one of my sight word packs.
grab it here on TpT, here on TN
