Sight Word Helicopters

So D is in kindergarten, and in addition to his homework (which incidentally he LOVES #sorrynotsorry) we have to "study" his sight words... 

Seemed too boring for me.

SO.... we grabbed some cool paper and made helicopters.

On each side (that the helicopter could land on) we put one of the sight words... 

He drops the whole bunch from standing on top of a chair and then runs along them and tells which word he sees! 

WAY more fun than "studying" except... the same :) 

Here are some instructions for making helicopters.

The Blind Read

I know people are all... 
teachers are out to get my kid 
and they love the common core 
and are in the job for the fat paychecks 
and they want to destroy the love of learning
and they love tests and all... but despite the negative press... lots of us aren't... I promise!! 



Here is an example of a way to make paper writing silly, fun, and FAIR.

It's easy.

Instead of names... assign (or let them pick out of basket) aliases... 

Comic book villains
Vegetables
Pizza toppings 
Princesses
Cities 
Types of cars
Bruce Willis movies
Farm Animals...

The possibilities are endless :) 

Have the kids sign in on a class roster, and just put it in a folder until you're finished grading... 

Best part... writing your feedback to The Riddler ;) 
Happy Teaching!
