The first graders at St. Paul are pushing to finish out the school year strong. They have worked so hard with their sight words in both recognizing them by sight and using them in their writing. We played a little game using a picker wheel loaded with sight word phrases to give some practice to this skill. The students spun the wheel to reveal a sight word phrase and used that phrase in a written sentence. It was great to see how their sentence structure, sight word recognizing and writing as well as their imagination came together.
