I LOVE having a sensory table in my classroom! It is a great partnership of hands-on learning and purposeful and meaningful activities. I use this seasonal winter snow themed cards as the center of a fun sight word activity. These work great in a sensory bin as well as other ideas.
The main way that I use this activity is in a sensory bin. I will prep the cards, place them in a sensory bin filled with fake snow. When using these cards in this type of activity, children will pull a card, identify the sight word and then write the words on one of the including recording sheets.
Besides a sensory bin, you can also use these sight word cards in the following ways:
- Print two sets of each card and use as a matching game
- Place the cards in random parts of the room, place a recording sheet on a clipboard. Students will walk around, find the sight word cards and then write on the recording sheet.
- Use in pocket chart
- Any other sight word activity
Besides being able to use these sight word cards in multiple ways, these cards are also editable. That means you can add YOUR OWN sight words to them. It’s super easy to make these cards relevant to your curriculum and your students. Just simply type the words into the text boxes and print from there.
Prepping this activity will be easier with these supplies:
- 50 Sight Word Cards
- Editable Cards to Add Your Own Sight Words
- Self-Assessment Response/Recording Sheet (4 style options)
Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
