Sight Words Logic Tile Cards are a fun, hands-on way for students to learn and practice reading/spelling all 92 pre-primer and primer Dolch Sight Words! These tile cards will challenge students by having them use their logic and spelling skills to complete a variety of sight words, using only five vowel letter tiles. Students have to manipulate the vowel tiles on each card, until they get five correct sight words. Some cards can have words where multiple vowels fit in one word (i.e. ____n can be “on,” “in,” or “an”), so students will be challenged to use their problem solving skills to figure out which letter belongs in a particular box based on reading the other words on the page.
Students place the vowel letter tiles on the “vowel place mat” at the bottom of each tile card before beginning. This is a great time to reinforce and practice the sound each letter makes (both long and short vowel sound). This center can also be done with a partner, where students take turns trying to complete the five words on the tile card together. There are also five sentence tile cards included in this set. Students place the vowel letter tiles in the appropriate boxes and then they have to read the sentence allowed to the teacher/parent volunteer. This provides some extra, fun reading practice too!
Students are able to see their success in working through these tile cards, as they keep track using their own Tile Card Tracker (also included in this file). Once a tile card is completed and checked by the teacher, students get a “star” on their Tile Card Tracker and they are allowed to choose another card to complete.
Logic Tile Cards make a great center activity, either for small group, or independent student practice. Directions are included with each set, so parent volunteers can easily run a tile card center too. Once students get the hang of how to complete a tile card, this becomes a fun and easy go-to center for students!
