I'm trying to increase the rigor in my word work centers. I have the standard sight word practice mediums such as white boards, magnetic letters, sand and stamps but I'm looking for ways to make it more challenging. Administration made a comment to another teacher the other day that stamping sight words was very dated and more suitable for kindergarten (I teach first). That made me stop and evaluate my current set up. Do you have any suggestions for activities that can carry over week to week but are rigorous? Here are a couple that I thought of: Sorting words into real and make-believe for different word families Skimming books for different sight words or word families Can't wait to hear your suggestions. Thanks!
