Sight words are a big part of learning how to read, so I am frequently trying out new ways to make learning sight words exciting. Recently, I added a quick, simple activity to our weekly sight word practice.
First, my little friends each chose a sight word they knew from our pile. Then, using the free ShowMe app, they took a picture of their sight word card, then wrote the sight word and last they recorded themselves using their sight word in a sentence.
This activity is great for a center or small guided work, even if you just have one iPad. I will be doing this at least once a week since they loved it so much and it helps them practice their sight words. Thanks to the amazing Holly over at Fourth Grade Flipper for hosting Tried It Tuesday!
Have a great day!
