Eat Your Words- Your Sight Words!

Hello Everyone!
Just a quick post today.  This week we are working hard at reviewing the sight words that we are responsible for reading and spelling!  I want to be able to see evidence of mastery of these words in written expression.
I am a firm believer, as you can probably guess, that involving all the senses helps kids make more profound connections with learning.  So, of course, I had to come up with a way to involve senses into our word work today.  I decided to use Alpha-Bits for an "Eat Your Words" activity.  I have used Froot Loops, Cheez-Its, Chips Ahoy cookies and a couple of other things to help practice our weekly chunks, so I knew the kids would love this.  It turned out they it was a bit more challenging than we thought it would be,  Some of the letters the kids needed were not included in the cereal mix so they had to "problem solve" and create the letters needed out of other letters.  They did it!!! I was so proud that they stuck with it and thoroughly cemented those words!!  Let them play with their food!! :)
