A Shower of High-Frequency Words
I made a list of the sight words that Eve needs to know for the set of readers that we are working with and printed them out on clouds at sparklebox. I sewed a raindrop from some blue fabric and filled it with dried lentils to make it heavy, then painted a rainbow on some card.
Eve threw the raindrop to land on a word cloud then if she read the word easily she put it on the rainbow and got a smartie to eat, if she needed help then she put it back with the other clouds. I got Eve to choose the words, and to choose a few other aspects like where we did it etc. She wasn't overly keen still but it's a start!!
