First of all, our students are half day, so we only get to teach them for about 3 hours a day!
I also stick these in write and wipe pockets and put them in our sight word centers. This way my kiddos can keep practicing throughout the week. On Tuesday, we practice using the word in a scrambled sentence. Once it's in the correct order, they read the sentence. Then they make a silly sentence by scrambling the words again.
They read their silly sentence and point to each word as they read it. This is a great way to practice reading the actual words and not relying on the clues from the sentence to help decode, plus they think it's hilarious!
Then they unscramble the sentence again, this time gluing it on the bottom of the page in order. Finally, they write the sentence on the line and draw a picture to match.
So much learning in one little sheet! On Wednesday, we practice reading, finding, writing and stamping our sight word.
Sometimes we use little bingo daubers to cover the words: On Thursdays we use the word in a journal write. We orally share our sentences, then we go back to our seats and the kids use their best guess spelling to complete their journals.
Sometimes we have a sentence starter and sometimes we respond to a prompt. You just need a paperclip and pencil to make a spinner.
I also saw these really great spinners online, I think I might just break down and buy them already! We also love to use stamps in my room, so we practice stamping and writing our sight words too. Later on in the year, I place our Super Sight Word spellers in the writing center, and my students practice writing the sight words in lots of fun ways!
Now onto my favorite part, sight word centers!!! Mary from Sharing Kindergarten just came out with a bunch of new sight word centers!
They are seriously amazing! Some of my favorites are the watercolor words and the word puzzles. I also love these little booklets from Lori at Teaching with Love and Laughter!
And of course, you all know I'm obsessed with Maria's interactive sight word readers! You have to go to her page and read about it because she's just hilarious like that! Tara from Little Minds at Work puts magnetic letters into little tupperware dishes and has her students unscramble them.
Then they write the word.Kindergarten guided reading small groups! Looking for ideas to help your students with their reading skills in small groups? Check out how I organize my small group time! Kindergarten guided reading small groups!

Wikispaces was founded in and has since been used by educators, companies and individuals across the globe. Unfortunately, the time has come where we have had to make the difficult business decision to end the Wikispaces service. This lesson describes small-group, guided writing lessons, which are taught in four steps for students who are in need of extra support.
Students learn how to communicate information of interest, stimulated by discussion of Nicola Davies' Bat Loves the Night and several websites. Students learn.
Activities for Small Groups: Preschool education activities that teachers can use to enhance the growth of language, logic, pre-reading and counting skills of young children. These activities easily develop into lesson plans that provide active learning experiences for preschool children and enrich early childhood curriculum.
Interactive writing makes the writing process visual to the whole class. Reading literature is an excellent way to initiate interactive writing in the class, and the teacher can continue using literature as the class does interactive writing with any new book that is read throughout the year.
