Sight Word Interventions-FREEBIE!

April 18 Deedee 3 min read

The final 6 weeks of school are here… time for the final stretch.So many of my friends are just a few words away from knowing all 54 of their words, but I have a few who have a way to go.  This got me thinking… dun, dun, dun, DUN!!!

Free sight word interventions are here! Kindergarten activities and ideas to help build sight word fluency!

For those kiddos who have a road ahead of them, I simplify.  I select 4-5 words each week for the student to receive intensive intervention lessons.   Each student still has their word rings that we started the year with which have 54 words on it, but I have highlighted the 4-5 words that I want them to master that week.

This is the freebie that I shared awhile back that explains how these word rings work.  They are free and you can grab this at the end of this post.

 
My sweeties have these word rings to take home to practice, but I also wanted their day FILLED with learning these words… did I mention we only have 6 weeks left?   {she said in a frantic tone}.
 
I thought about a lanyard, but a coworker mentioned this could be a disaster with the water fountain.  So, I found these instead.

I am so grateful for the ESGI program.  After a quick assessment, I can easily see the words my kiddos still need to learn… THEN I can print flash cards for them… WITH! ONE! CLICK!

This is what the cards look like.

ESGI allows you to create lots of reports, but I just saved them as a PDF.   Then I printed them 2 to a page so the cards were smaller and they would fit into the badge pocket.  I decided every one of my students would get one of these.  It literally took me 15 minutes to make my whole class set.  Did I mention that each card is printed with the student’s names on them?  If they get separated from their owner, we can quickly get them in their proper place.

For my students who are on target, their pocket will contain all of the words they have yet to learn.  For my intervention students, their pocket will have the 4-5 focus words.  Throughout the day, we can pull those cards out and do a quick check.  Students will coach each other.
Not gonna lie… sort of excited about this!

What about my students who know them all?  They will be wearing these.

Sight word activities

Time Me has been a class favorite all year, so I will keep this going in my stations.  We start the year with letters, then move to words, and finish the year with phrases.  Because this file is editable, you can add the words and phrases to meet YOUR needs!  WOOT.  You can see the files by clicking HERE.

This is a sight word AND spelling game.  Students love it and because it is also editable, you can add the words YOU need!  I have many different themes and you can see this collection HERE.

For my intervention friends, I used one of the reports from ESGI and selected the focus words.  The plugged them into my Super Speed Intervention unit.

 
We also use this activity that is SO EASY to prep!  My class loves it.  I can give each student different words to work on for the week!  It is programmable, so YOU can enter the words… no more fumbling through endless resources!  You can find it HERE.
 
 

I will also work with magnets… they love the cookie sheets!

How are you addressing sight word fluency?

    I do word rings with stars as well, but I think I do mine slightly differently. I make a small line on the card when the child says the word correctly each time we go through the ring . When the child has said the word correctly five different times the lines form a star. Then I put a star sticker on top so that it is clear that the child knows that word. I figure if they have told me the word five times over the course of a couple of weeks they really know the word.

    Deedee, I love the name badge idea. I hadn't thought of letting the kids wear them. My team and I wear sight words or numbers in our name badge to help the kids. I love the badge for those who are proficient. This just might make those who only have a few to go bump it up.
    BTW- check Walmart for those badges, they come in packs of 12/$1.88 and you can buy the clips or pins to add to the backs.

    I'm lucky enough to have a paraprofessional in my room. She tests the students sight words once a month and those that are a below a certain level she pulls for intervention. She goes through flash cards, has them spell a word with magnetic letters, and they do write, read, erase on mini-white boards. They write the word, underline it with their finger while they read it, and erase it to do it again. They do this three times.

    I've been seeing this ESGI software around on different blogs and it looks really awesome, I wish my school would consider purchasing it for us.

    I love putting stars on the ones they know! Helpful to the parents to keep track!

    We are sharing students in a common intervention time within our 3 Kindergarten sections. We have 3 intensive groups which work with the classroom teachers (we grouped them according to the words they did NOT know so they could work on only those words with a variety of games and activities, much easier to do with 63 students than 21), then some "good to go" groups that know most or all sight words that are playing games to take them a bit further and reinforce the words they know and use them, and also an enrichment group for kids that need to go further than that. I think we will add these word rings and the voice cards, too! How fun!

    We practice rapid recognition in a reading fodder with a partner in an AB pattern then I take a fluency test at the end of the week.
