My students are struggling readers. Not only do they have trouble reading the passages on the standardized tests, they also struggle to read all the words in the questions. Words like compare, italics, difference, and understand are really hard for my students to read. Last year, I decided to treat these words like sight words and hope that my students could memorize some of them. I made this vocabulary game last year, but I revamped it some now. I hope that by practicing reading these words in isolation my students will be able to identify them on the test. Click on the picture to download your own FREE copy!
Now onto something I'm really excited about! One of my 1st graders with autism is grumpy a lot. He doesn't socialize a lot. He's usually just kind of unhappy and reluctant to do things at school. Well on Friday, he was wearing a Batman shirt and mentioned his shirt to me. I asked him if he liked Batman and he said yes. I told him that I could make him a Batman sight word game, and his face lit up!! We talked about what the game would be like and what we could use for the Draw Again, Give Back 2 Cards, and Lose a Turn cards. I told him I'd make the game and have it ready for him on Monday. I can't wait to see if he likes the game or not. I hope he's not disappointed and this peps up his mood some! Click on the picture to check out the game at my TPT store.
I've also just added this other cute Cat at the Circus Sight Word Game.
