Sight Word Write-the-Room!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday.  We are completely iced-in here in Dallas, so I finally had the time to get this Write-the-Room file finished up!

 Write-the-Room is one of my most favorite literacy stations, because it gets the kids excited to read and write!  It's easy to change-up each week and differentiate.  I provide the students with clipboards and lots of different glasses to wear (thank you Dollar Stores)!

This file is great, because it contains 78 sight words!  You can use it for the entire year.  Once the kiddos understand the procedures, you don't have to re-explain it every week!  The sight words are linked to kid-friendly symbols.  Just print, cut, laminate the cards, and post them around the room.
 There are 5 different recording pages that you can use with all of the words.  This will help you easily differentiate the same Write-the-Room activity to meet a variety of student skill levels.

 If you are a follower, leave me a comment!  First 3 to comment will get this Sight Word pack emailed to ya for free!  ;-)  [Make sure to include your email address in the comment.]

Stay warm!


  1. This pack looks great. I would love a copy. Thanks so much!

  2. Wow, I am your newest follower!

  3. I'm a follower! Thank you!

  4. Love it Nora!!! I'm now following you too! : )

  5. I’m creating awareness to the parents, teachers and home educators about fostering young learners to embrace computing skill at an early age, whether or not they grow up to be another Steve Jobs.
    Yeah, I know, some would say they are too young to learn, programming is cryptic, etc.

    Well, it’s about time to change that mind-set. Programming diverse in many ways, and it’s not necessarily be involved with enigmatic coding or perplexing scripting. With advancement of today’s technology, it is made possible even to teach children as early as 8.

    One programming software worth touching on is “Scratch”, developed by Lifelong Kindergarten (http://llk.media.mit.edu/) at MIT Media Lab, designed for children 8 yrs and above. Scratch is a visual programming language made up of bricks, that are dragged and snapped together to make a program. Just like Lego, it uses hardware bricks to make objects, Scratch uses software bricks to make a program. Moreover, teaching guides, communities and other resources are all available on their website to help instructors get rolling.
    What's more ?? Scratch is free !!!

    I’ve just started a blog (www.scratchingarduino.blogspot.com), hopefully bringing together young learners, enthusiasts, or non-programmers alike, to get started with creative computing. There’ll be tutorials along the path. As it progress, I will also blog about physical computing (also with Scratch) where interfacing with sensors and “homemade” robotics should preserve the interest for a while.

    By the way, this is not some sort of a marketing or promotional gimmick. I’m just another semi-retired old dude, struggling ways and means to do something, instead of sitting at home waiting for that “inevitable moment”. Community service would be the best option, I felt.

    Please help spread the word if you think this is helpful.

  6. I love this! I especially love that you have them wearing special glasses to wear as they do the center! I so need to get to the dollar store to get more glasses! You are spectacular!

  7. I am Crrrrazzzy for Write the Room activities. We also wear special glasses when we read and write the room. Hope I get this:)

  8. Actually, I just ahead and purchased this resource. I love it, especially the pick a word and write a sentence.
