Using a "detective" theme students work through the practice page (see below). My daughter is in LOVE with the Cam Jansen books... and this gave me the idea to refresh and old favorite. I find that I have more excitement when introducing a learning activity when I have a gimmick or theme attached (not to mention very cute clip art!!!)
I Spy (look for the focus word among other sight words for visual discrimination)
Find the clue. (search for the correct spelling of the sight word, understanding that order matters)
Retrace your steps. (trace the word, the focus word with an initial capital is one of the tracing practices)
Solve the puzzle. (cut and paste the letters to create a the focus word)
Write. (fill in a sentence with the sight word)
Draw the scene. (draw a picture to match the sentence)
...and although it does not fit the theme, a class favorite: Rainbow trace the word. Students write and rewrite using a different color each time.
