Sight Word Table Bins

I am back today to share an idea about Sight Word Table Bins that has been a LIFE SAVER for me over the past few year!
Sight words are more of a challenge this year than any other year! We have over 100 words for my little kindergarten friends to learn this year! YIKES!  Here is what has been great for me!
They are so simple to make, too! I had a parent volunteer make several sets for me my second year of teaching when I switched grade levels.

Instead of calling the tables by color, I call them by sight words.  The kids sit at different tables during work stations throughout the day so they have 4 new words each week that we focus on.  Not only do they SEE the words over and over, but they HEAR them, too.

Get some extra sight word practice in with this simple activity! It's basically free and will work for preschool, kindergarten, and first grade students. I love how she used the table bins! #sightwords #sightwordactivities #preschool #kindergarten #firstgrade #homeschool #mrsrichardsonsclass

  1. Great idea! My kinders have a much higher sight word load this year too (not 100 though!) and I am always looking for ways to get the words in front of them! Thanks for sharing!



  2. What a great idea! I teach 2nd so my kiddos know their words by this time, but I am totally going to do a version of this at home with my own littles! They would love this!!!

  3. Amanda,
    I just wanted to thank you for sharing the “end of the year buckets.” They turned out so cute and the kids were so excited. This has been such a crazy year and my students deserved something fun and educational. I am going to start collecting things as I find them for next year too! Have a great summer!
