It’s hard… isn’t it.  When you look at the needs of your district, then the needs of your classroom, then the needs of your individual students, it can be challenging to make an easy sight word intervention that is tailored to the INDIVIDUAL CHILD!
 
I have 5 students in my intervention group.   AND when I looked at my data, each child needed to learn different words.  First, you start with the data and I used ESGI to track and organize it (sanity saver!).
 

Target what they need to know

Last year I about lost my mind.  In order for my intervention students to catch up, they needed to master 3 new words each week.  Since they all had different words that was essentially 15 different words that I had to work with each day.  Finding a flexible resource was impossible, so I made my own.
 
You just type the words in once, select the theme, and PRINT!

When you look at the needs of your district, then the needs of your classroom, then the needs of your individual students, it can be challenging to make an easy sight word intervention that is tailored to the INDIVIDUAL CHILD! Here's my simple solution.
 
 

Monday:

They sort the sight words.

Tuesday:

They read and color code the sight words.

Wednesday:

They roll and read the sight words.

Thursday:

They spin and write the sight words.

Friday:

They use the sight words in a sentence.
 

I even enlisted some of our classmates to become “Junior Teachers”.

Earning one of these Junior Teacher badges was pretty monumental! The name tags I used can be found HERE!
Here was their note from me!  You can download it by clicking on the image.

Progress!

Although I keep my word specific data on ESGI, I also have students graph their growth.  This is exciting form them and serves as a HUGE motivator.

Play a Game!

One of the activities my students did during their time with a Junior Teacher was they played a game.  We LOVE GAMES!

 
We LOVE Roll, Say, Keep… and we can play it over and over and over.  We start the year with ABC cards, then move to sight words.  You can find those activities HERE.
 

 These games are also editable so you can add your own words.

Time Me is another super fun activity.  Students select a set of sight words and use a time to go as quickly as possible.  Each set has an engaging theme, so they always get excited to see the “new” set.  Again, these are made as editable files, so you can easily enter your own words.
Then they document their progress!

Altogether Now!
I noticed that my entire class loved doing these pages.   They flocked to them, so I started using these Sight Word Intervention pages as a whole group activity.

However, not everyone needs to limit their words to 3 a week… right… so…

BIG WORDS!

I created this!

 

This allows for 6 words per week.  This allows for you to differentiate even more!
1. 3 review words, 3 new words
2.  2 review words, 4 new words
YOU GET THE PICTURE!

This also allows for longer words (up to 10 letters long).

You can find these units by clicking on the images below.

    I’m excited to see this in my fb feed!
    Once upon a time, there was a busy, stressed and forgetful teacher who saw your post recently about students helping other students practice.
    Later she wanted to read more about it and couldn’t find the post, couldn’t remember who posted it, couldn’t remember any key words to help her google it. She has been trying to figure out how She could find it again and here you are! Thank you! ?

    Hi Dee Dee
    I missed your site word webinar and I was wondering if there’s a place on your website that I could still watch it.
