Sophia has been learning a few sight words (see, a, I, and and the), so we tried this easy little game.
I wrote a few sight words on the whiteboard. I called out a sight word and Sophia ran to erase it. She had so much fun with this very simple task. I wasn't really sure if she was solid in these 5 sight words, but this little "assessment" showed me that she indeed knows all of them:)
I went on to try this little task with Audrey and her math facts. Although she can add well, I wanted this task to be both automatic and fluent. I called out a sum and she was quick to erase the problem. She also enjoyed this task!
When I was teaching in the classroom, my students would alway enjoy racing against each other to find answers to math problems on the whiteboard. This is just another great way to make learning FUN!
