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!!!
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.
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.
We will also add some more Roll, Say, Keep activities. This will be for Spring! Yes! These are also editable! You can see the whole collection 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.
I will also work with magnets… they love the cookie sheets!
Here you go!
