First graders in Ms. Lloyd’s Title I class at Star of the Sea reviewed high frequency words and learned the sight word there for Thanksgiving.
Practicing the Sight Word THERE
The students practiced the sight word there using the following activities:
- Mixing and fixing magnetic letters to spell there.
- Identifying the missing letter.
- Copying and then writing there on white boards.
Pocket Chart Sentences
Then, they created pocket chart sentences using sight word cards and phonetic spelling.
Making the Books for Thanksgiving
Finally, they colored, illustrated and read a turkey dinner themed sight word book making sure to match speech to print and crosscheck the pictures with the words.
Sharing There for Thanksgiving
Below are pages of the books they were super excited to take these home to share with their families.
