Remember last week when we promised we’d fill you in on what the cookie sheets were doing in this photo?

Here we go!  Now – you could totally use just this activity as we shared it last week!  In fact, you might want to start out by doing just that the first time you introduce it to your class.  But…if you’d like to take it one step further, first off, you’ll need to make a quick trip to the best teacher store there is…the dollar store!  You’ll want as many cookie sheets as you’ll have children working at once, this printable sight words activity from last week, and some magnetic letters.

First, have your students trace the words, just like last week.  Once they’re done, they write the sight word with magnets!  These happen to fit right on top of the words, but it’s certainly not necessary.  With a stack of sight word printables in sheet protectors and a few dollar store cookie sheets, this is an activity that will keep a small group engaged in hands on learning for a while!

You could always start out the first week with just the dotted sight words to trace.  Add in the magnets on week 2. Change from crayons to markers on week 3 and you have three different, hands on sight word activities all ready to go.

Have a different twist to add?  Do something similar in your classroom already?  We’d love to hear all about it!
