My 2nd graders have become really motivated to learn their sight words thanks to the Sight Word Superstars motivational program I downloaded from Finally in First.
In this program kids must read a list of 20 words from the Fry’s Word List in 20 seconds or less. For each list of 20 words a kid earns a sticker for their star. Once they have mastered all 5 lists, they receive a Sight Word Superstar Award.
This program allows for individualized instruction. My kids are excited to master a list and move on to the next one. I send home the word cards to be used at home as practice. I also have the kids read their list during Word Work before they practice their spelling words.
