Sight Word ID Badges

I am a proponent of making concepts readily available at any given moment in my classroom.  Something I thought would be intriguing for the children is to have the adults in the classroom actually 'wear' a series of words:

I have an entire set of sight words - the picture shows only three.  The plan is to change the words periodically.  Throughout the week, perhaps the teachers will switch words every now and then so the children will have new opportunities to identify the words.  Later, the children may want to be the ones wearing the words - we will have to see how this idea of mine works...!

Surely this will pique the children's interest and awareness of words!  I look forward to observing their responses and watching them make connections with other materials in our classroom and beyond.

  1. What a great idea! I've written one or two on our blackboard in the past, but this is a great way for more children to actually take notice of them. Thanks Sasha- will be using this one! ~Mandy

  2. So glad to hear it, Mandy! Today, one of the students was so excited to have found one of the words in a title of a book. It was a very exciting moment for her! :)
