I always have students in my class who LOVE math – they will sit there counting in their spare time and pick up on new math concepts without even blinking. Then… it’s time to work on our sight words and they automatically aren’t interested… they don’t even want to put in the effort! (Does anyone else have these types of students or is it just me!?)
Well… I figured it out: make them think they’re doing math when they’re really doing ELA! My mathematically inclined students LOVE these games… and don’t even realize they’re practicing their sight words in the process of doing addition!
I decided to bridge off of the concept of Scrabble to have students add up the value of words.
I made a few games for the Dolch Sight Words:
