Students will complete this lesson in small groups. The students will listen to the sight word spoken on the iPad by pushing the star in the application. The student will then record him/herself saying the word and listen to it back. After the word is repeated, the students will spell the word by saying each letter in the word. The final step is for the student to practice writing the word by writing it out on the iPad. At the end of the practice group, the students will play a game using the sight words, such as matching puzzle pieces to the sight words.

This lesson is excellent for students learning English as a second language (ESL) and students with language and/or speech impairment. The students can listen to the words pronounced correctly and repeat the words.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
This lesson can be further used by after reading a story or passage from the Social Studies curriculum and have the students circle the sight words found in the passage.

There are thousands of applications that can be found on the iPad to use in all areas of the curriculum.
Students can located sight words in a passage by circling them. Students can follow up by writing simple sentences using the sight words.
