Sight Word Math with Look Alike Words

Do you have students that mix up look alike sight words? Words such as his and has or look and like or them and then or on and no? Me, too! Why not spend time integrating sight word practice on these types of word while you are also working on graphing, patterns or coins?

Set 1: Graphs & Patterns...

Set 2: Coins...

The Bundle...

Here's a sample of what you'll find in Set 1: Graphs & Patterns...
Two versions of Find, Tally & Graph for each set of words...

Growing Firsties

A few versions to practice graphing & patterns:

Note that the piece of clip art is the same on both versions to indicate that the same words are used on the corresponding sheets...this helps you organize easily and provides extra practice with each set of words! 

A completed page...

Full size & Quarter-Page size Answer Keys depending on how you plan to use them...



Curious about which words are used?

Set 2: Coins uses the SAME words as in Set 1, but arranged in groups of six words instead of four. This set includes mixed coin counting practice...

PS...Blogger is being a SaSsAfRaS and I'm not sure why the following page pics look a little gray...I promise they are perfectly fine on the actual pages!

There are three different coin combinations...you can see which coins are used next to the title on each page.


Answer Keys come in both Full & Quarter Page...


Wowzers...thanks for sticking with me! Here's a freebie for you to enjoy - Roll A Word & Roll A Chunk...click either pic to download. :)

  2. Wow! I really like these activities. I think my favourite is the graphing activity that includes questions about the graph. What a great way to combine language and math. I'm liking the pattern pages too. Idea - maybe the pattern words could be in different colours or word sizes for some pages - or even change the position of the words. This could add a second attribute to their patterning! Fantastic ideas!

  3. I also should have added that I use codes to do sight words - I assign a number to a letter and the kids have to figure out the word. They love that!

  4. These all look so fabulous! Anything that give the kids more exposure to sight words! We use words their way to help kids with their reading and word patterns, I am willing to use anything that interests the kids :)

  6. By second my students generally have the sight words mastered. Generally...although there are always some who are tripped up on the 'easy' words so this would be perfect review for them!

    1. What I do is write the sight words on the dry erase board 2 different times. I put the kids into two different teams and give them a fly swatter and the first student to swat the correct word earns a point for their team.

  13. I love these! The questions and coin counting add a great challenge. These are going on my wish list just in case I don't win! Each week I write our new words on hand shaped die cuts and stick them in high traffic areas in the room. The kids read them and then high-five them. It never gets old for them.

  14. The kids see the words spelled out on the ipad and they trace it with their fingers and/or pen on a laminated sentence strip.

  15. These are absolutely adorable! I wish I had a class to use them on!! I can't wait to use all the fun activities you teachers have put together!

  16. These look great. Some of the activities my students do to master their sight words are: go fish, memory match, stamp the words, spell/read them with magnets and roll & read (they love this one).

  18. This packet looks great :)

    In my classroom we have them on a board and review every week. I also give a spelling test on sight words every week. This way they are constantly practicing them. I pick two random from the weeks before.

  28. This is an awesome idea. I love how this works. I like to play "popcorn" or "skunked " games with the sight words in small groups. My kids also like to play teacher in stations with them. I also like to out try's phrases on a power point for them to practice.

  30. Wow this looks great! I have acquired some things over the years to teach sight words. We do a lot of sight word activities during our Word Work rotation. They use them in sentences, rainbow write them, write them in ABC order, use sight word flash cards, sight word bingo, etc.

  31. I teach sight words w/ pictures/symbols for my students w/ ieps. I also do lots of hand-on practice activities: stamping, lego letters, unifix letters, magnetic tile letters, etc. dbednarsk@yahoo.com

  32. I use sight word games, flash cards, and have them write them all the time on any writing assignment or by practicing them on their whiteboards.

  33. What a great way to combine sight words with math and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. a great review.

    ReplyDelete
  34. To teach sight words I have the students locate the words in a word book that we keep, we use lots of different voices and movements, and play games. We also do some word hunt/graphing activities and they practice writing them in many different ways.

    Your packs look AMAZING!! I really love the coin set to allow students more opportunities to practice their money counting skills!

  36. I have a station for my kids to use the sight words to build addition sentences They count vowels and then consonants in the word and create a number sentence.

  37. Well obviously I need your packets...... :o) I have a sight word list that goes home as homework ~ parents sign when the child is ready to be tested. If they pass, they're given a new list to study. Your way looks a lot more fun...... :o)

  39. What an awesome way to incorporate sight words in other curriculum areas! I just love these and the kids will to. We do sight word chants, sight word passwords of the day, and a sight word book. But these would make learning them so much better!!

  47. These activities are wonderful and I love how they combine the skill of counting coins with identifying sight words! One of our favorite word games is "Sight Word Derby" where students race their sight words across the page as they roll a dice and write them as quickly as they can. They get so excited when their word wins!

  48. Absolutely LOVE these sight word activities. I am always looking for new ways for my kids to practice their sight words. I just wished you had the money in CANADIAN coin as well and had a document that can be changed on my end for words that we are studying. Thanks for all your hard work.
