Check out this cool idea a reader submitted. It’s simple, but genius!
If you use a pocket chart to hold vocabulary words, you can diagram them right on the pocket! Use an overhead marker or a whiteboard marker to diagram words onto the clear front pocket of the chart! This way, you can leave it up for the week while you’re focusing on a specific principle, and you don’t have to write on the word strip.
Have any other great ideas? Send them to me (squareheadteachers at gmail dot com) and I’ll post them on this blog! Thanks!
I haven’t done much with sight words on this blog so far, so I thought I’d take advantage of the fun Autumn leaves and make a fall themed sight words worksheet for kindergarten or preschool. I suggest having the student color the word “yellow” with a yellow crayon and “orange” with an orange crayon, etc. This way, they can still do the activity even if they haven’t mastered color words yet. This is a great activity for fine motor skills to color in the irregular-shaped leaves. Enjoy!
