Stoplight Sight Word Practice
We’ve been slowly but surely teaching our Ada to read, and while she likes to do the phonics part, she easily gets bored when it comes to learning sight words. We’ve been trying to change it up in order to keep her interested in what can sometimes be kinda boring word work.
Jake created a stoplight to put the words in when we’re quizzing her.
Green light: If she says the word correctly on her first try, she puts her card in here.
Yellow light: If she says the word correctly on her second try, she puts it in here.
Red light: If she doesn’t say the word correctly within 2 tries, she puts the card here.
By the end, she sees how many words she does know (yay! celebrate!) and which words she doesn’t know. We’ll keep those words out for the rest of the day and we’ll practice them in-between playing or napping or eating.
To make it, all you have to do is grab a piece of cardboard, cut out three strips of construction paper- green, yellow, and red, and form them into a circle. Tape them together and then tape them onto the cardboard. Voila! 🙂
Just a little easy tool to make to help the sometimes tedious work of learning sight words a bit more fun!
