Sight Word Review with Flash Cards

I have been trying to think of a fun way to review S's sight words and keep them in order.  After a trip to the Dollar Tree (don't get me started on how much I love this place!) I was inspired.  I found one of those small coupon binders and brought it home and got started.  We are using the Trend Level A Sight Words Pocket Flash Cards.  I found them at Office Max and I know Hobby Lobby offers them as well.

I first labeled each of the tabs in the binder:

  • Review - The words she cannot read at all.
  • Can Read - Words she can read but doesn't know on sight.
  • Knows On Sight - Words that she knows without a doubt.
  • NEW! - Words that we have yet to go over.

Over look my sloppy handwriting.  I was in a hurry!

Then I stuck a label on the front of it.  

And we got started!

So far her "Knows on Sight" is the largest of all.  Once we have all of them (they are 2 sided) in the "Knows by Sight" section we will get the Level 2 words and a new folder to use those in.  I think this is a fun and easy way to keep us on task with her sight words and on her reading.  

What fun things do you do to keep you on task and motivated?
