Phonics Engagement Made Easy

Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Y'all let me tell you....this activity brings #allthefeels - I have parents emailing me telling me their children can't stop talking about the Hulk hands and how much fun they are having at school!

  I found these this summer on Amazon and had to order them!  You can find them : here... 






There are a few options with these fun fists.  My students love to play the punch out the sight word, or sight word fist bump game.  I spread out sight words and they find one they want to read and say it aloud.  Next they pound the Hulk fist on it.  After that they keep that word in a pile.  We take turns and play until there are no more sight words.

I even had to get in on the action....I mean they're Hulk fists right?!?!

sight word ideas for small groups



Look at this happy guy learning those sight words!!!



Another option is to add it to a word building activity.  We built words with puzzle letter tiles and then I asked them to find the vowels.  They would say the word they built aloud and then say the vowel and the /sound/ and then pound the word.  They keep asking to play this one.

Other option: build a word, find and 'hit' the vowel.  Differentiate by building 4 - 6 letter words.

I hope your reading group time is as fun as my reading group time.  It was a small investment to make for this much engagement...let me know if you try it out.  Thanks for joining me for my weekly series:  

Don't forget you can find me each week on Instagram too for my weekly video series:  Sunday Night Snippets.  As always,
