How to Use Summer Sight Word Flashcards with Students
To use these summer sight words learning cards, try some of these suggestions.
Review all of the flashcards with students. Make sure to talk about each picture before introducing the sight word.
After students have reviewed the sight words, introduce the word labeling cards and labels.
You can use these as a cut and paste activity. Or you can laminate them and add hook and loop adhesive coins to reuse the cards at centers.
You might also find it helpful to keep the flashcards nearby so students can self-check their answers.
Students who are already writing can even use dry erase markers to label the laminated cards for themselves!
If you have pre-readers or ELL students in your class, the picture matching cards are a gentle introduction to reading.
Let students review the pictures and then use the flashcards to guide them in matching the cards and images with the right words.
