My Phonics Interactive Notebook worked very well with my first graders last year. I thought making something else similar to the phonics INB would be beneficial for my lower second graders and some of your kinders and firsties Check out sight word interactive notebooks below!
Materials needed for Sight Word Interactive Notebooks:
- Notebook or binders and loose-leaf paper
- Crayons (optional)
How it’s set up…
In my collection of interactive notebook activities, there are two formats.
- Activities for single words
- Activities that review a set of ten words
There will be two PDFs when you download the units. You can choose to do both or pick between the two formats. If you want a deeper study of the words, try the activities for single words. If you want to review words and give students activities to keep sight words fresh in their minds, do the collection of ten words!
Take a closer peek below at the two formats…
Activities for single words
Here is a look at the word study “find”…
This picture shows the individual activities for all the words in the list. All activities can fit on two pages of a notebook. If you’re going to use a smaller composition notebook, you can print at 80% to give the students a bit more room on the page.
One activity to study the individual word is to use it in a sentence. This will not only help students read and spell their sight words, but it will help them understand the meaning of the words.
Another activity to study the word ‘find’ is to rainbow-write the word. This will help the students slow down and focus on how the word is spelled.
When students have to color-code the word they will need two colors. That is because the consonants are going to be red and the vowels are going to be blue!
Activities for collections of ten
This page shows all (but one) of the review activities for some of the pre-primer words.
The cut and spell are a favorite. The students will cut apart letters, then lift the flap and glue the words down underneath.
On the left, you see a simple trace and write activity that helps students practice writing the word. Then, on the right, you see an activity that asks them to use comprehension and sentence skills. They have to use the words in a sentence or question.
One activity that is shown on the left is a word bank and a sorting activity where students have to count letters in each word and sort. Then, they will study their word sounds. Each sight word will have a flap that the students have to lift and write a rhyming word underneath it. It will help them recognize their sight words and teach them how to read them aloud.
Another activity asks students to plug five words into letterboxes. They have to use their letter knowledge skills since the box sizes are dependent upon the size of the letter. This will also help with the correct spelling of their new sight words.
Which sight word set are you looking for?
I also started the process of Fry’s 100 lists. I got the first 100 finished, if you’re interested in Fry instead of Dolch.
