But they’re not just for fun. Most basic color words are kindergarten sight words (check out my free printable list) and being able to recognize color words is important for kids to be able to complete higher level tasks. Here’s my fun, but simple color word recognition:
Hello everyone! I’ve finally figured out a way to add candy corn to a worksheet! (I do love me some candy corn in October!) Anyway, here’s a simple adjectives activity for your students. Have them come up with two adjectives about each Halloween noun, and then color the candy corn (built-in “fast finisher” for your speedy students). Have a great Halloween!
I recently made these Dolch sight words flash cards for pre-K, kindergarten, first grade, second grade and third grade all using Microsoft Word 2013. It’s my new favorite thing! Click below for the front and back to the set you want to download:
I always like having some educational holiday-themed activities handy for students who finish early. This is my newest one in my St. Patrick’s Day collection. It’s a simple ABC order with St. Patrick’s Day words.
I recently read a blog post on all the fun ways you can modify tic-tac-toe to make it more educational. This idea was my favorite: Cut up an egg carton (or make your own board out of paper) and create pieces of two different colors. On each piece, write a high-frequency sight word you would like your child or class to practice. Then have the kids play the standard game with these rules:
You must say the word when you play the piece.
After the game ends, you must write down the words you used AND the words your opponent used.
I would make a bunch of sets for my classroom using a variety of sight words so kids can play when they finish an assignment. If you use paper (pieces and boards), laminate them so they’ll last longer. Also, to keep sets together, I’d make a blue set (using light and dark blue pieces) so the kids know all the blue pieces go together.
This game can also be played with letter names and sounds if you’re working with younger kids (preschool, kindergarten, first grade).
