I downloaded a Dolch sight word game from A Place to Share and the kids absolutely loved playing the "shark" game. They enjoyed sounding out the words shown on the fish and were sometimes more excited about getting a shark than a fish. If they got a shark it would "eat" their fish and they would lose all their fish. A couple students had difficulty sounding out some words at the beginning and they would always say the same wrong word. Now six weeks later when they got that card they would say, "remember when I used to say ____, now I know it's ___".
I loved seeing the excitement on their faces when they knew they could read the words correctly!!
