Introduction

 

Sight words are the word that not follow the rule of spelling or the six syllables type, but you have to memorize by sight immediately (within three seconds) and read them without having to use decoding skills.

The goal of Sight Words Bean Bag Toss is to provide continued exposure to a set of sight words, with opportunities for repetition and confidence building.

A child simply tosses a bean bag toward an array of sight words flashcards, reading whatever word the bean bag lands on. It is a simple game with a fun physical element to help children use up some of the fidgety energy.

A child simply tosses a bean bag toward an array of sight words flash cards, reading whatever word the bean bag lands on. It is a simple game with a fun physical element to help children use up some of the fidgety energy.

Materials

The game requires one or more bean bags and some sight words flash cards. If you don’t have any bean bags, you can instead use any other item that behaves similarly. It must be relatively small and stay in one place when it lands on the floor, with no significant bouncing or rolling.

For cards, you can simply use flash cards or cards from any of our other SightWords.com games.

Process

 

 

1. Spread the cards, face-up, on the floor. They should be close together, but not touching each other.

2. Students stand nearby and gently toss a bean bag toward the cards.  

3. After the bean bag is tossed, the Student should walk over and pick up the card the bean bag landed on top of (or closest to).

4. The student should then read the word on the card, using your finger to underline the word from left to right. If you read the word correctly,  go back to the back of the line so the next student can have a turn.

5. If you cannot read the word, go through our sight words correction procedure to review and reinforce the correct pronunciation.

For students who need more special care**

If the student lacks the coordination to toss the bean bag accurately, have him stand right next to the array of cards and basically drop the bean bag onto one of the cards.

Evaluation

1. Observe the game and make note of which words the student is struggling with.

2. Give these words extra attention in the next lesson. Also, look out for an individual student who is having trouble with lots of words.

3. The student’s throwing accuracy is the least important part of this game, also the participate and comprehension in the activities is one of the processes of the evaluation.

 

 

 

Conclusion

1. Scale the difficulty level of the game by using an easier or more difficult set of words. Adjust the distance the student stand from the cards as well as the size of the cards used to match their throwing ability and aim.

2.  The teacher can stop mid-game and rearrange the cards on the floor if the student is hitting the same few cards over and over. This also forces them to read each word instead of simply memorizing which word is in which location.

3. An individual student may want to remove cards as they are “played,” to encourage their activity to go through all the cards.
