Most new readers need to read sight words many times to master them. Our challenge as teachers is to keep the practice frequent, diverse, and interesting. Here's one easy way to do just that with your mid-year kindergarteners through early first graders.
On this set of sign-in sheets, students respond to simple yes/no statements by signing their name. The statements are packed with sight words like have, to, like, can, etc. ... more repetitions=faster mastery! There's a blank template for your own ideas. One easy way to extend this (and to increase the number of sight words used) is to change the statements to questions. For example, a few weeks after using "I like pizza", try using "Do you like to eat pizza with your family?" or "Do you like to eat pizza at school?".
