    As many of you know I am thinking about implementing the Daily 5 fully in my classroom next year. This year I used some of the concepts-read to self-read to buddy-writing but I also have other centers sprinkled in.

    I have so many items that I purchased at the store that do not fit in with Daily 5.

    I have
    lacing beads
    blending games
    concentration games
    sight words activities

    How do you use the things you have like this when you are using Daily 5 in your classroom?

    I think they could be put in the working with words part.

    With working with words can you also do activities that relate to sight words?

    I would think so. Reading sight words is an important part of fluency. Without fluency, comprehension suffers.

    I agree. Maybe you could designate certain days/weeks for sight word activities, or even add it as a separate session.

    I did not do enough sight word practice with my students. I need to focus on this for next year.

    I think that working with sight words would fit into working with words time.

    Word work in my kindergarten classroom consisted of anything that had to do with words: sight words, phonics, learning letters and sounds-anything!

    You could also use some of those activities in your small group work with students.

    LIke the others, word work.
    I also sometimes allow my students to read sight words during 'read to self' and 'read to someone'.
