Help students read and understand their sight words by using these fun and engaging sight word sentence posters. They can be used in so many ways – I will outline some of these options in this post – they include a version which the students can color and make their own booklets! SO much fun!
First off – who wouldn’t LOVE colorful posters?? They will brighten up any room. As soon as I put these up my students’ eyes lit up! I worked on five at a time so not to overwhelm them. 🙂
The set in this post is a sample from the FULL pack of 100 sight words (FRY LIST) which is right HERE on TPT
OR THE BUNDLE HERE for 30% OFF SAVINGS.
What you’ll need to set these up:
- coloring pencils
- stapler or a binder ring
So what I did first is choose a set of five sight words we are working on each week. I get the kids to practice these sight words throughout the week in numerous ways like finding the sight words in books we’re reading, building sight words in sand, using letter tiles to match the words they pick etc.
So I needed a visual aid that helps my students read their sight words in context so that they understand how this word is used in written and oral format. The posters include different types of sentences like questions and statements. These help the kids understand that the words can be used in different sentences to form different meanings. My ESL kiddos LOVED these posters, I even made a small version of the poster cards, laminated them and placed them in a binder ring which would make them perfect for small groups work.
That’s the set that my ESL kiddos worked on:
Sight Word Mini Cards Color and Trace
Since I made a B&W version of these posters, I added the option of tracing in the word they are reading. This worked PERFECTLY as the kids were eager to color their posters. I stapled five posters at a time each week for my ESL kiddos to take home, show their parents and continue practicing their sight words!
Magnetic letters Sight Word Builders
For this activity, you would need some magnetic letters.
Here is another way I used these poster cards with my students, I made a little tub where I placed the posters I wanted them to work on. They would choose poster at a time and find the magnetic letters to build each sight word.
This activity helped the kids learn to spell their sight words as they looked for and matched the letters. You can even place the posters on a magnetic board and have the kids build their words right on the board.
Some of the kids were writing their words on a separate paper to further practice the words, they were also reading the sentence as they did this. My ESL students struggle with their sentence structure so these posters are a HIT with them!
