Sight Word Fun

We have been working a lot on our sight words and have been doing a few fun activities to practice them daily.  One day we played musical chairs.  I played the kids Christmas Program music and they sang along to it as they walked around the chairs.  When the music stopped, they sat down in a chair with a word on it.  If they didn't get a chair they were out...........but they had a chance to get back in.  I then went around and each student had 3 seconds to tell me what his/her word was and if they missed it then they sat out and someone else came back in the game.  They had a blast with it.  

The second game was having a snowball fight.  The kids wrote down a sight word on a piece of scrap paper and crumbled it up.  They threw it in the room and then had to go find one.  They picked one up, opened it and had to read the word to me.  We also played this one in math using addition facts. 

What are some of the ways that you practice sight words/vocabulary words?  I am on a hunt for some more ideas of ways to practice and would love to hear from you!

On another note, check out the cool gingerbread train that one of our student's grandparents made for us.  (Do you know how hard it was to have to cut it up for the kids to eat it?  I didn't want to do it because it looked so neat and I didn't want to mess it up.)

Have a great day!
