As a part of my guided reading groups students do short word work activities. For my lowest group that includes a lot of sight word practice. One activity my students enjoy is a pocket chart sight word center I got from lakeshore. They place a word card in the chard and then find letter cards to build the word. It is simple but a hands on way for them to practice. I like that fact that all of the materials are in one place. Unfortunately this center is not longer made, and only has a small number of words.
I decided to make my own version of the activity. This way I can really target the words those students need to practice, and will enough materials as new students join the group. I’ve added the Sight word building cards to my TPT store.
