Sight Word Name Cards

Have you run out of ways to practice sight words? We have a fun activity with these Sight Word Name Cards that are here to help!  At this point in the year, all of my lessons and activities seem to revolve around worksheets or repetition that bore the kids. So I tried to come up with a fun new way that would add to the fun and excitement while making it meaningful for them.  That’s right, we changed our names for the day to a sight word!

We started with this fun name application.  Students filled it out, selected a sight word for their name, and then cut out their name card.  Of course, I modeled this and we had to be a little careful the students all picked different sight words (with 91 sight words we are responsible for this year, there were plenty of options for everyone!)

The class took about 10-15 minutes to fill out their papers and cards. The top part was turned in and the bottom part was trimmed up. They brought the bottom portion to me. Then I simply taped the yarn on to make their identification necklace. My students were simply ecstatic with this activity! They loved getting to choose a new ‘name’ and being able to read their friends’ new ‘names’ as well!

This resource goes well with:

We did this first thing in the morning so they would have their name the whole day. Sight words were perfect for the end of the year (and the middle to it would work great!)  But, how great would this be to use at the beginning of the year too with letters? Or with numbers for math too!  The possibilities are endless!  (We added a more general title so you can do this with any content!)
