Sight Word Practice

I find it difficult to practice sight words outside of center time in a way that is interesting. This is my new  trial and error version. At the beginning of the day, the students write their new sight word onto the card in the boxes. One of my students was very confused... you want us to box the word???? Anyways, once they have written the word in, they get a laminated name card and put their new sight word in. They get to keep the old one and take home to practice with.

Then throughout the day I sing this song 
To the tune of: Where is Thump kin?

(Teacher) Where is sight word, where is sight word?

(Students) Here I am, Here I am! (students hold up their card)

(Teacher) Word today is ____, Word today is ______

(Students) _____, _____, _____
              _____, _____, _____
You can find the poster on my Teachers pay Teachers site.
