Interactive Sight Word Practice and Christmas Preparations

With Thanksgiving behind us, I am going full steam ahead toward Christmas. I love this time of year - especially in my Kindergarten classroom. We have so much fun decorating, celebrating, performing, and waiting that the suspense continues to build all through the month of December.

Of course, we can't forget about curriculum just because it is holiday season. Sight Word Mastery continues to be a significant focus of my instruction and my kinders have been LOVING the interactive books I created to help them learn their sight words in a hands-on way (and practice reading!)

If you're a Kinder-Craze Facebook Fan, you probably know ALL about my Interactive Sight Word Readers (and may have even scored a few free books along the way. I have gotten a LOT of positive feedback for these little books and am producing new ones as quickly as I can. I thought it was time to fill all of you beloved blog readers in on the Interactive Readers and show you what they're all about.

I made SEVERAL holiday-themed sight word readers that feature a variety of sight words so you can select the ones that fit your current instructional focus. I am in love with my "Do you See Santa?" book and I'm thrilled to introduce you to it.

The practice begins with the cover page - the featured sight word is shows in big clear print for students to color. 
cut and glue sight word letters to complete a sentence

For each page of the booklet, students will cut out and unscramble letters for the featured sight word (this book's sight word is "Do")

The next step is to glue the letters (this is a great opportunity for students to pay attention to the letters and make sure they are not upside down!)
cut and glue "do" into each sentence - interactive sight word practice

All pages of the book have a predictable sentence that is repeated on each page 
(in this case: "Do you see___?") The last page always has an extra challenge or fun twist in the words. 
All pages - finished and ready to be stapled into a booklet!
