Musical Sight Words

There are many ways to practice reading and spelling sight words (those words we see and use most often in our reading and writing) but one of our favorite ways is to play Musical Sight Words.  We try to get a game or two in each week.

What you need:

-index cards/strips of paper
-a music player

How to play:

-place one word, one marker and one student on each chair.
-start your music maestro/a!
-students walk around and around until the music stops.
-when the music stops students stop at the nearest chair to read and trace the sight word with the marker.
