  • Teaching Tip

Product Description:

Three delightful activities—plus a sight words poem—to help children learn about homophones!

• Syllable Signal (objectives)
- to distinguish between one- and two-syllable sight words

• Syllable Sort (objectives)
- to sort sight words by the number of syllables they contain
- to write sight words that contain one and two syllables

• Syllable Add-Ons (objectives)
- to attach common suffixes to one-syllable sight words
- to create sentences using the new words

The poem features words from the Dolch list, a widely recognized list of sight words. Along with the companion activities, this poem presents an opportunity to introduce children to specific elements of language such as parts of speech, word families, and more! Includes a copy of the poem (Clap Your Hands), three activities, plus teaching tips!

Grades K - 2

Enjoyable activities reinforce sight word development! The activities provide additional practice of sight words, as well as other essential language skills. Rasinski and Padak (2000) stress the need for children to "explore, make, and play with words." The activities are an opportunity for children to do just that. Many of the activities are designed to engage children working in pairs or small groups. This arrangement promotes socialization and overall language usage among children!
