Megan Smith, a sixth-grade teacher in the Bay Area, contributed some fantastic posts to our blog about using the Creativity Kit to make reading exercises for children who are in the process of learning to read. Her game focus on sight words (also called Dolch words)--those words that most help early readers gain reading fluency.
The first activity she suggests helps learners learn how to spell those words: Sight Words Speller.
Once students are familiar with the words themselves, they can try using them in sentences. One particularly nice component of the Sight Words Sentences activity, is the opportunity to engage your early reader in the process of making the game: your learner can help you decide which words they would like to use and can come up with some of the sentences themselves.
