Popcorn Anyone?

I love sight words!  I have been so blown away at how quickly my students have learned their popcorn words this year and how good they are at pointing them out.  Below are a few fun popcorn related documents for you.

I printed these out on regular white paper, cut around the edges and wrapped them around a bag of popcorn for my kiddos who have mastered reading all of their popcorn words.  They loved it!

I wrote their names on the little popcorn piece she has in her hand and they got to hang the piece on the big popcorn bucket on the wall. (I forgot to take a pic. of that.)

We love to "Bang" with our popcorn words whole group so I made these popcorn pieces with our sight words on them to use.  To play put all the pieces in some kind of container. I use the plastic popcorn buckets you can get in the dollar bin at Target or many other places.  Children take turns pulling one popcorn word out at a time and read it to their partner or group.  The children will keep taking turns until someone pulls a "BANG" card.  The student who pulls the "BANG" card has to put all their pieces back in the bucket.  To play this game whole group place 4 BANG cards into the sight word pile.  Hold up sight words 1 by 1 having the students read.  When you hold up a BANG card all sight word cards go back into the pile.  Play for a couple of rounds.

What fun things do you do to encourage mastery of sight words?

    I wanted to download your Popcorn Bang sight word game from your blog for my kindergarten class, and it took me to the Scribd page to download, but after I sign in and click download, it says that this (popcorn bang) has been put into the Scribd Archives,,,how do I go about getting it? It also said the same thing for some of your other things that were on your blog. Is it possible for you to email me the game? or can you post it again for download? I would appreciate it.
