Sight words with Movement

Submitted by Judi Huxedurp (10-10-2012)

My son has Autism and needs to learn in a different way, movement is his strength. So we incorporate sight words in movement games. Word twister is popular in our house.

It works like this: on the twister mat bluetack the words that you are focusing on - onto each dot so that the colour is visible.

Using the spinner go on the colour and say the word. The next step is adding the words to the spinner. It works best with 3-4 children one being the caller and the others doing the movement.

  • I believe with report writing, it's important to not generalise or be too 'flowery' in the comments. As a parent, I appreciate knowing which skills/areas my children need strengthening in. So as a rule of thumb - when it comes to report writing - I always start with a positive, then I mention an area that the student needs further development in and then I finish off on a high with another positive. Works a treat!

  • Great site. I downloaded lots of resources when I taught year 1. However, I cannot find much for Year 3 and I was looking forward to it. Could you please upload more for stage 2. Thanks

  • There are about 11 or 12 spelling choices for the speech sound sssss, so look at the THRASS resource chart. Not all there. It has left my child bored, and being told to learn the charts which still don't help him to spell the words he wants to spell, and is always being told its a catchall. A thumbs down for me too. Ken
