I am excited to be linking up with Katie from Teacher to the Core.
As a third grade teacher, I haven't really done much with sight words. However, it seems every year I have some students who are coming to be well below grade level and they are missing many sight words. So as I was surfing pinterest (follow me here if you'd like!) I found the most amazing idea from Teach 123... Sight word homework! Think about it. It can be completely differentiated for each students and their needs, plus it requires little class time. I don't know about you, but I feel like I can't fit one.more.thing into our schedule! Kids would be given a list of sight words. We would practice them really quickly at the beginning of our guided reading group and they would be expected to practice the words at home each night. Then, on Friday, I would time each student reading their words and they would graph their time into our data folders (perfect data for RTI).
