Getting Ready

I printed the free sight word cards (HERE) on cardstock to give them extra durability. (I picked the set with a blue background but I also included an identical white version in case you want to conserve ink.) Then, I grabbed my scissors and cut them apart. Easy peasy!

For the next step, I transformed a pool noodle I’d picked up at the Dollar Store into a lightsaber. I cut off about a foot from one end to make the pool noodle less floppy and then wrapped it with some shiny silver duct tape and a strip of sparkly black Scotch Brand expressions tape to make a futuristic handle.

I taped the sight word cards to our fence outside so my son would have plenty of room to joust and invited him to join me.

The moment my son set eyes on the Darth Vader cards, he fell instantly smitten. He eagerly grabbed his imaginary lightsaber to start battling the evil Darth Vader sight words. I had him read the word, spell it and then read it again to help his brain memorize.

“Away. A-W-A-Y. Away!” he called out as he whipped his saber through the air.

Star Wars Sight Words!“Help. H-E-L-P. Help,” he chanted next.

When he was finished a few minutes later, we collected the cards and brought them inside so he could record his conquests on an official Star Wars Sight Word sheet. So fun and motivating!!
