Many classrooms are filled with a mixed bag of reading levels. To help students reach their fullest potential, teachers must stretch the strongest and weakest readers alike. Sound impossible?! I promise it’s not. This super easy way to differentiate sight word games will save you tons of time and money.
Once you’ve assessed kids’ and placed them in groups, open up our 30 editable sight word games and scroll down to page 3 – Getting Started. Type in the first group’s word list. All 18 words will automatically load into the right spot for all 30 games. It’s super fast and easy.
Print the game you want the kids to play on cardstock to give it some extra durability.
Click SAVE, then name it something like “Blue Group, Week 1”. That’s it. The first group’s all set.
Just scroll back to page 3 and type the second group’s word list. Print the same activity again with this new set of words and save it as something like, “Red Group, Week 1″…
The game pack’s such an easy way to differentiate. And, what’s even better, it helps keep students from comparing themselves because everyone can work on the exact same game but practice different words.
