I need some ideas for Literacy Activities during centers. My first grade students need extra practice with sight words and spelling. They can't handle a lot of freedom and want something that won't take a lot of time to prepare. I have them do a memory match game with sights words (easy to make). They seem to be getting bored and it's hard for them to concentrate at the end of the year. For sight words, I have them use sand paper and then put the blank paper to write the sight word over it, then they can trace it with their finger...it has a bumpy texture. rainbow write (write the word 5 times over with different colored crayons). magnetic letters (they end up on the floor and don't seem to respect anything).
