More About Sight Word Stations~First Grade
 Did you check out the other post all about how I set up my Sight Word Stations with Mrs. Hoffer?

 Then you are going to LOVE this post how we use these stations...

I broke all the Primer sight words down into a 7 weeks bundle... covering 6 words a week.

Then I made 14 activities using just these words for EACH week.

First, let me say that these stations have been a welcoming and fun game changer in my classroom.
My students are working directly with sight words for a few minutes every day.
They are doing FUN activities they want to complete...
they are spelling the words...
they are saying the words...
they are reading the words.

Here are my kids using the Doodle Mats.
{I got these mats MUCH cheaper at Walmart than the link that shows, 
but I want you to see what they are...
Notice the sight word tent that I forgot to print on cardstock... 
it didn't stand up as well. Just saying...}

Here is a little wonderful coloring using crayons and the Rainbow Word sheet.

Here are some little loves making sentences using sight words.
I change the sentences out weekly, but the words used stay the same.
{And since I know how tough it is to get packs of words with all the words you need.
These packs INCLUDE printable COLOR CODED sight word sheets 
for Primer and PrePrimer words as well.
I don't have time to hunt for words in other sets... 
so I am going to assume you don't either.}

 I also set up the Read Along Station for this set of words.
Here is a little wonderful reading along with the sight word sheet.
Each pack comes with a 7 sentence Read Along WITH a recording file.
{YES... I even recorded the sheet and directions for you!}

 Once the recording reads over the sentences twice,
the little learners follow the directions given to color code sight words.

Here is a sentence scramble on our pocket chart.

Here is a set of secret code words being decoded.

 And my little wonderfuls unscrambling words.
And here is a picture of a Read, Build, and Write.

Here is a link to the PrePrimer Bundle Pack.

Here is a link to the First Grade Bundle Pack.
(I accidentally published the First Grade pack instead of the Primer pack.
Please forgive me! I am fixing all links and such now.
I promise to make it up to everyone.)

I know you are going to LOVE these stations as much as I do.
I know your students are going to BEG you to keep working on these words like my students do.

And does it work???
I can only tell you want is happening in my room.
Prep time for me is easier and so much better.

Every student in my room is learning at least one word a week.
Most of my students are learning at least 5 of the words each week.
Many of my students are learning ALL of the words each week.

  34. I absolutely love these...the easy prep is the best part, which as buyer is really important. This is my first year teaching kindergarten. I taught third and fourth for years...but needed a change. And what a change it has been...I've never worked harder in my life...but love it so much as well! I'm smitten with these little guys :) I just finished assessing for report cards and noticed that sight words was an area they are lacking in....this pack would help tremendously (...and all your products have so far)! Thanks again for sharing!
