Sight Word Flashcards with Visuals

I made these flashcards to help students learn their sight words using the visuals cues. I do a Multiple Intelligences assessment on each of my students and so many of my students are visual learners, I wanted to give them a strategy that worked for them! Also, in a reading course I took while working towards my special education licensure, I read that when visuals are embedded in the materials, students are more likely to make the connection, so that is what I tried to do. I made the graphics and the font. For some of the sight words it was easy to come up with a visual to accompany the text. Some of the sight words are abstract and were a little more difficult, so I came up with auditory cues to help students understand all the visuals and put everything together for them. The idea is to use these flashcards until students are able to identify the all the words immediately, and then gently wean them off the visuals. I have product packets on TpT that contains sight word flashcards with visuals for the pre-primer and primer lists, auditory cues to accompany the flashcards, flashcards without visuals, a checklist for progress monitoring and a graph for progress monitoring. These materials have really worked to help a lot of my students.  Here are the links.

Also, here are blank flashcard templates I made that students to use to help them learn sight words or vocabulary.  On the first page, students can draw pictures to accompany their sight words or vocabulary.  On the second page (not pictured), students can make tactile flashcards using glitter glue or plastic screens and crayons.

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

1 Corinthians 2:9
