Sight Words

I've broken the second grade sight word list into two separate lists for my students.  The first list is the Happy Hundred, where the students pass by reading each word accurately in 100 seconds or less! Once they pass the first list, they earn a "Happy Hundred" club card that includes their name, I.D. number (class number), and thumbprint! (They looooove putting their thumbs in my ink pads!) :)  I then laminate the cards for durability!  After passing the first list, they move on to the Wonderful 120, which they have to pass in 2 minutes or less.  They earn a bookmark once they've passed!  For an added incentive after passing both lists, each student writes their name on an ice cream scoop and adds it to an ice cream cone display in our room.  Once the cone is full (every student has completed both lists), I reward them with an ice cream treat!

NOTE:  Since this original post, I have updated my Sight Word packet and uploaded it to TpT.  Click the images below to download!
