The Words on the Bus

I am ALWAYS trying to think of ways to help my kiddos learn sight words. They try so hard when they come to them to "use" their strategies like "Eagle Eye"ing the picture, "Stretchy Snake"ing the sounds out, and "Lips the Fish"ing to get their mouth ready but for many of those words they just have to remember them. Here is yet one more way to learn them AND they will have fun singing too!

I copy the pages on tag and laminate them and the words. I put Velcro on the bus and the matching Velcro piece on the word card. I keep all of the 2 letter word buses in one bag, the 3 letter word buses in another bag and so on. As we introduce our word wall words for the week, we add and practice singing our new words on the buses.

Here are the 2 letter word buses. I started making this file and it is already over 100 slides and I haven't even finished all of the 4 letter words we will learn this year. Plus, I am slightly ADD when it comes to making things and I usually have about 4 different projects I am working on at one time!


Please let me know if you have any questions. I would also LOVE a heart note letting me know if you want me to share the other buses with you when I finish. Or maybe leave me a heart note and share what is THE BEST activity you do to help with sight words.
