Sight Word Make a Match!

Learning how to read is such an exciting journey and a HUGE part of reading involves SIGHT WORDS!  I finished updating our Sight Word Make a Match packets and I am super happy that the littlest Moffatt Girl LOVES them!

Here are some interesting statics about sight words:
*12 Sight Words make up 25% of those we read and write.
*100 Sight Words make up 50% of those we read and write.
*About 300 Sight Words account for 75% of those we read and write!

Needless to say, sight words are a huge focus when learning how to read.  When kids can master those "tricky" sight words, they are able to focus on sounding out the other words.  
Sight Word Make a Match! The different fonts helps kids read and recognize words in a variety of printed and published styles!

I don't want to just create "worksheets", but I want our learning to purposeful, engaging and FUN!  The Sight Word Make a Match packets hit a home run!  
There was coloring...

Coloring is also good for building fine motor skills...
Sight Word Make a Match! The different fonts helps kids read and recognize words in a variety of printed and published styles!

On this sight word page we focused on the word "like".  Although it is a sight word, I was still able to do a little phonics instruction.  Sophia is learning the rule of the "Magic e" and she quickly identified it in the word "like".  We decided that we would color the i and the e the same color since they work together to make one sound.  
Sight Word Make a Match! The different fonts helps kids read and recognize words in a variety of printed and published styles!

We pulled out the Bingo Dabbers (I picked mine up at Lakeshore) and dotted the likes red and the other words green.  This was almost like a craft for her :)

Then came the cutting...

And some glueing!  She seems to get a little giddy when we pull out the glue.  I could have had her use the glue stick, but squeezing those glue bottles are SO good for building muscles in the hand and preparing her for writing.

Sorting and pasting...

The finished product!  I was surprised at how much time she took on this activity.  She really enjoys all the engaging components to learning a sight words.  At the end of the sheet, she mastered the word like, even spelling the word! 
Sight Word Make a Match! The different fonts helps kids read and recognize words in a variety of printed and published styles!

On this sheet we just colored the focused word pink and the other words blue.  We played a game to see how many of the other words she could read.  This is a great way to spiral review the sight words as your student(s) learn them.

Dive Into Shapes GIVEAWAY!

Learning Resources makes some wonderful educational products that makes learning FUN and exciting!  I have the privilege of reviewing their new Dive Into Shapes set, and I am super excited to be able to give a set away to one of our readers!  I am all about hands-on learning and engaging ways to make concepts more concrete.  I KNEW that this shape set would be a perfect fit The Moffatt Girls!

What is Included in the Dive into Shapes set?
*This intro into shapes and geometry set includes 60 sticks in 3 different sizes, 20 curves, 34 connectors and 15 double-sided activity cards.

I want my girls to LOVE math and this set really encourages following directions, creativity, imagination and fine motor skills!  My little Sophia was not interested in using the activity cards, so she ventured out on our own to build and construct some 3-D shapes.  

 It was neat to see the girls work together on building shapes...

Audrey was all about the activity cards and she wanted to build a sphere.
She had fun wearing half of her sphere as a hat...

And of course Sophia had to try it on as well…
Needless to say…math is FUN!

There are 15 different double-sided activity cards included in this set, with a total of 30 different activities.  Each activity card tells you how many rods are needed to construct the shape.  I also like that there is a challenge included on each card to uplevel the activity.

Audrey's mind was always trying to see what else she could make with shape she constructed.  Both of the girls really enjoyed playing with this set!

The connectors, curves and rods are very easy to work with and extremely durable. 

Together the girls worked on building a house.  This task would require the girls to put two different shapes together, a cube and a triangular prism.  The challenge question was, "What else can you make out of these two shapes?"  They talked about it and came up with all sorts of "strange" creations ;)

This was a lot of fun for the girls and it really helped with teamwork, basic geometric shapes and fine motor skills!

I highly recommend this set!  I wish I had 100 sets to giveaway!  For YOUR chance to WIN the Dive into Shapes set, use the Rafflecopter below.

Ready2Read Level 1 Unit 4

We are making so much progress with our Ready2Read units!  By unit 4, the light bulb really went on for this little Moffatt Girl!  She is reading up a storm and the growth from one unit to the next is absolutely AMAZING!  It really helps that the units are fun and engaging for her!  Her fluency and confidence is growing by leaps and bounds!

Unit 4 Sight Word: we, play, come, for, help
Unit 4 Word Families: -ug and op
*Daily Lesson Plans Included

You can get Level 1 Unit 4 {HERE} or grab the entire bundle for 20% off {HERE}

Color by Sight Word 
Our coloring pages are a huge hit because they let kids color and practice the sight words for the week!  

I also love that the Color by Sight Word pages help reinforce color word practice.  
By Unit 4, she is able to read the color words independently and with ease.

Coloring also helps build those fine motor skills needed for writing!

So proud!

 Word Family Word Sort (-ug and -op)
We had a TON of fun with these cute little word sort kids!   

The goal was to read the words on the word family balloons and sort them to the correct kid.

This was PERFECT for sounding it out… letter by letter!


Here is the -ug family balloon boy….

Here is the -op family balloon girl...



She was SO proud of herself for reading and sorting all of her words! I LOVE that our Ready2Read program is not only building her fluency, but it is also building her CONFIDENCE!

Here is the end result of our Word Family Word Sort!  How cute is this!?!
She really enjoyed this activity and wanted to play a few more times!  What a FUN way to help build fluency and confidence!

Color by Word Family
This cute little coloring page incorporated the -ug and -op word families.  

Coloring is SERIOUS business for this little Moffatt Girl!

Learning just doesn't get better than this!
*Coloring by the code
*Reading word family words
*Having FUN!

 I love keeping it simple, fun and highly effective!

She has been trying very hard to stay in the lines when she colors.  
She is VERY proud of her Color by Word Family coloring page!

Break the Sight Word Code
The Break the Sight Word Code page is always super fun and engaging for her!  She loves using the clues to find and discover her sight words for the week!

She accidentally put the wrong letter on her page, but SHE caught it and SHE corrected it! 

 Looking back and finding the correct letter!

Ohhh…what word is this?

She broke the sight word code for this weeks words: we, play, come, for and help!


CVC Puzzles
These little puzzles are a BIG hit and really effective for sounding out CVC words.  I like to put magnets on the back of the pieces so that we can use them on the whiteboard. I begin by mixing up all the pieces.  This little Moffatt Girl likes to look for the pictures first and then she sounds out the word.

Building the picture, sounding it out and blending the word has helped TREMENDOUSLY!  The growth since we started with unit 1 is AMAZING!


Yep!  I think she is pretty proud of her new reading skills!

Singing Sight Words
Singing our sight words to the tune of B-I-N-G-O is always a FUN activity and kids LOVE to sing!  I like to use magnets for this activity as well.  I begin by placing the words on the left and the little Moffatt Girl picks a sight word to sing. Be sure to follow us on INSTAGRAM to see her sining the sight word song!

After placing all of the words in the right spots, we sing our sight words to the tune of B-I-N-G-O!
There was a sight word for the day, 
And play was our sight word
P-L-A-Y (repeat 3 times)
And play was our sight word!

Super FUN and super effective!  In fact, I have found her singing her sight words throughout the day :)

I like to change it up a bit with dot markers for our Find and Color page...

This is a fun activity that is a lot like a scavenger hunt for words...

First grab a card, sound out and blend the word and find the word on the page...


 Dot mark the word or color it...

When she came across these two cards, she told me that I made a mistake :)  She said that there are 2 "bug" cards. This b and d reversal is VERY common, so I had her point to the beginning sound in both words.  She corrected herself and said, "OH!  Bug and DUG!"  

 I like to use the cards from this activity to add to our pocket chart.  This allows us to read and re-read the word family words.  Ready2Read heavily relies on repetition with a variety of learning modalities.

The word family word slides are very popular!  This time we unleveled the activity by writing the words on a mini-whitebaord while working with the -ug word family.  This helps with seeing, hearing and spelling the word families.

She wants to write SO BADLY…that even wants to correct all her own mistakes.  

Here is our -op word family slide...

 She is working on her sight word caterpillar pieces that will help GROW our sight word caterpillar.  

This was an activity that she was super eager to do so that she could show me her handwriting!

The Read it, Trace it, Paste it pages are almost like a craft.  I like to use crayons, dot makers, colored pencils and watercolors to add some fun to this activity. 

As you can see, the girl really likes pink.  She colored each word a different shade of pink…
Whatever works :)

Then she cut and pasted the pages to make the sentence...

We are adding this -op flower to our Ready2Read wall….

 This -ug cloud will be added as well...

 We LOVE our Ready2Read wall because it is a FUN way to review our word families and practice some fluency!

I wasn't able to capture all of the activities in this Ready2Read unit, but hopefully enough to give you an idea of all of the hands-on and engaging activities in each unit!
 You can grab the BUNDLE for Ready2Read Level 1, which includes 8 units {HERE}.

Additional Resources that we are using with Ready2Read Level 1:
*Emergent Readers (The Bundle)- These are perfect for extra practice with pre-primer sight words and simple short vowel word families! I am using these to build fluency.
*I Can Read Simple Sentences (Set 1)- This really helps provide more practice for sight words and word families.
*CVC Word Family Watches- The wearable watches are a FUN way to practice reading the words throughout the day.
