Read It, Build It, Write It
This technique to teach sight words can be done with a group or one-on-one. Students have a piece of paper with three boxes on it, labeled “Read,” “Build,” and “Write.” They also have cards with sight words, magnetic letters (or tiles) and a marker.
Students and the teacher read the sight word that’s in the “Read” box. Then they build the word in the “Build” box, using their letters. Finally, they practice writing it in the “Write” box.
