My district requires us to teach the Dolch sight word list. I try to get as much practice in as I can but my schedule is crazy hectic this year so I don’t always have the time to do an activity. I made this sight word powerpoint to use as a quick review. When I have a few minutes to fill, I display this powerpoint through my projector and have my students call out the words. It takes only a minute or two and the kids really like it.
You can listen to them calling out the words by watching the quick video below. I’m sitting at my computer and changing the slides myself. This was recorded with my phone so excuse the quality.
I can also set the slide to change automatically. I’ve been having it set to change the slide about every 2 seconds. They love to see how fast they can say them so if we go through a set and I have everyone on task, reading with good accuracy, I’ll change the settings to 1 second and boy do they love it. Sometimes they can get it, and other times it’s too much for them.
I’ve posted this powerpoint to TPT. I’ve included individual power points for the pre-primer – 3rd grade word lists. I’ve also included a powerpoint with all of the words. Each word list is also a different color. The powerpoint is not editable but you can set the settings for the slide to change automatically.
I have the powerpoint with all the words saved on my desktop. We’ve been doing the first and second grade word list. When they see the “3rd Grade slide” pop up, it becomes a big deal! We’ve gone through the 3rd grade words a few times. They are so proud of themselves when they finish.
KABOOM! is the one game that I always say every teacher needs in their classroom. It is so versatile and can be used with anything. This is my students absolute favorite game to play and they never get tired of it. I have games made for all subject areas. Read all about this class favorite! ---> bit.ly/KABOOMClassroomGame...

One year, we read a story about a little girl who flew around the world and saw many different things, one of which was the Statue of Liberty. When the students were asked to name something she saw on her journey, a little boy said the Spatula Delivery! Too cute!
