Common Core tells us we need to be teaching sight words. Common sense tells us that too. doesn't it? Students need to achieve quickness and accuracy with common sight words to make their job of reading a little easier. We all know if they are working too hard to decode words, there is not enough brain power left for comprehension of the story. Building up our students' reading fluency is an important step in their reading progress.
My students like to practice sight words. I try to make it fun for them. I've done some things on the Smartboard. But when I created these slides for them they loved them!

These sight words can be used in a variety of ways. They can be shown on the Smartboard as I have mentioned. You could also use them on an individual computer in a literacy center station. You can also print them off to make a class book for students to practice on. And you could individually choose which slides to print for students to take home a printed version of just the words they need to work on at home or keep in their desk.
I hope that I have given you another way to help make learning sight words fun for your students!
