Sensational Sight Words
If you’ve read much of my blog, you probably know that in my year teaching career I have taught in 3 different grades/content areas. I taught 1 year in middle school as a dyslexia intervention teacher, 3 years in 3rd grade, 3 years in kindergarten, and now I homeschool my son who struggles with dyslexia and dysgraphia. Through the years I have seen the importance of sight words to a student’s reading success. I don’t think it matters your grade, if you struggle with sight words your reading will be hindered.

My Favorite Sight Word Resource
A few years ago I set out to create a multi-sensory sight word practice page that my students could do independently. The result was a single page (can you say Yay! for saving copies) that allowed my students to practice reading and writing their sight word in 6 different ways. Not only did my students LOVE them but I saw an almost instant improvement in how quickly they were mastering these words. Here’s an example of what a page looks like.
