Spring Sight Words Spin, Write & Color

This has been a very interesting month for me. Exhausting, exciting, exhilarating, encouraging...all of the above. Life has truly been a factor, and I am thankful for every minute of it. That's why I haven't blogged for a lot of days. I'm glad to be back and inspired to create; it's what I love.

Recently, I assessed my struggling readers on their sight words, and discovered that they are in need of some more practice. They are all boys, so I am always challenged to think of activities to do with them which are fun and interactive. I've been using my iPad a lot with them, which they love. 

I love using technology and I love the iPad apps that are available. One that I've found very useful and my students enjoy is the 
Sight Words Ninja app which I downloaded from the iTunes App store. This app features an option which allows parents and teachers to customize the sight word lists depending on the needs of the students. This way students are having fun playing the interactive games while learning the sight words that they need to learn.

My students have a lot of fun practicing Sight Word Sentences with my Dolch Sight Word Sentence Practice PowerPoint as well. 

Since the boys need a little more work with the sight words in isolation, I created a product that would be fun as well as helpful for them. The Spring Sight Words Spin, Write, & Color worksheets product allows the students to do just that. A Spring theme makes it relevant and meaningful. 

Each worksheet covers eight words, on which students must spin a paper clip spinner and read the word that the spinner stops on. Next, they write the word on the line; and finally, find the word on the picture and color the section of the picture wherever they see the word.

Each word is found at least once on each picture.

I will be using these worksheets this coming week with the boys; each of which addresses the needs of each student, or all of them, respectfully. I plan to post my reflections on the worksheets, as well as feedback on how the boys responded and benefited from the worksheets, soon.

If you get a chance to use the worksheets too, I'd appreciate your feedback as well. Thanks and have a blessed week!
