This Editable St. Patrick’s Day Read It, Build It, Write It activity is a fun and engaging way for students to focus on reading and writing sight words. The word list is editable, so you can customize the cards with your own sight words, CVC words, or any other type of word list your class is studying.
How it works: Students choose a word card and place it at the top of the interactive word building mat. They read the sight word on the card. Next, they build the word with using the included printable letter tiles. You could also provide students with magnetic letters, wooden letter tiles, or any other small manipulative with letters. Finally, students use a dry-erase marker to practice writing the word. Extend the writing practice with the optional recording page.
This is a low-prep activity. The word cards are pre-filled with a set of 24 sight words. Keep or change them if you wish. Then, simply print and cut apart the cards. The word building mat and cards come in both color and black lines. Use a sheet protector or laminate the mat so it will work as a write and wipe activity. Provide students with a dry erase marker and you are ready to go.
This Read It, Build It, Write It set is a great way to review any word list! (**Note: The font size is preformatted to work best with sight words up to 8 letters. Longer words may not fit in the boxes.)
*** Important Note About Editable Activities: In order to edit the word list, you must use Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the PDF file. The editing features will not work if it is opened in your browser or another viewer.
