Sight Words Fun

This is an idea that I saw at the SC Kindergarten Teachers Conference. 

Brain research says that a person's eyes are drawn to the middle of a circle while your eyes are drawn to the edges of a square or rectangle shape. Since my kinders' eyes are obviously drawn to the middle of a circle as well, I typed up all of our sight words from the Journeys reading series on circles. They are enjoying reading the sight words this way. 

Another idea to review the sight words is to use the word worm circles. I created a different set for the first 3 units and last 3 units of the Journeys reading series. These word worms are available on TpT for $2.00 but they are on sale until Sunday night for $1.50. 

Journeys Kindergarten Sight Word Worms

To play the word worm game
Each student gets a circle. The teacher puts down the head of the word worm on the floor. The first student puts down his/her sight word and reads it. Each of the other students must read the sight words that are already a part of the word worm before they add their sight word to the worm. If a student has difficulty with a word, he/she may ask a classmate for help.  

Since I am in a giving mood, I am giving away 2 sets of my word worm games. All you need to do is enter through the Rafflecopter below. I will draw for my winner on Saturday so make sure you enter now.
