Sight Word Strips

Miss Kindergarten is having a Teaching Tip Linky Party...Click above to join in!

Each year, I've played around with how my students can access their sight words list.  We have a classroom word wall, but with both 1st and 2nd grades in one class, that makes for a lot of words!

I have taped them onto desks and kept them in folders.  But in the end, the tape always starts to peel away from the desks (messy - aaah!) or the students end up tossing them away when we do our quarterly folder clean out. 

So..this year, they are laminated, portable and look like this:
(btw, check out the bling on that little finger!)

They are two sided.   The black side contains the first hundred sight words and the red contains the second hundred.  The kids love them - the second graders can use them independently and the first graders are almost there.  They all help each other out to find words on the strips, which is always nice:)

Grab the FREEBIE - it's down at the bottom of this post!

  1. Hi Tracey,
    I just found you and am your newest follower. :o) I do something similar but they share them at their desks and I have a couple in a basket to help them in their writing. I love finding new teachers and sharing ideas!!! Good stuff! Have a great turkey day!
    PS The girl with the bling and I would get along GREAT!!! :o)

  2. What a great idea! I teach a lot of different grades in a day so it is hard to have a word wall because not all of my classes need it. I thin I might start using something like this.

  3. I love it! It will work perfectly for me! I used to teach multi-age Kindergarten/First. It was always a challenge, but I loved it!
    Thanks for sharing!
