Default Sight Words with Samson

I found a great program that helps ESL students learn the basic sight words. It's called Sight Words with Samson. It's probably best for K-5 ESL students. I have used it with several children and they really enjoy it.

Check it out at www.sightwordswithsamson.com

I wonder if you can make your own lists? I think it would be better if the words that they (sts) learned were related to their class.

I give my sts 10 words for homework, which they have to write 5 times. They always get 9 or 10 out of 10 in spelling tests.

Talking Re: Sight Words with Samson

Simply ELS,
Sight Words with Samson has been moved to Samson's Classroom. It now incorporates a program called Spelling with Samson which allows you to create your own word lists! The program is a GREAT supplemental tool to reinforce what you're teaching your students in the classroom.

I bought an online subscription a few months ago using the promo code, "HUGE2010" It might still work if you're interested. I think I got about $30 off or something like that!!! It was well worth it

Every now and then after the daily warm up I play a simple game with the students. I have all the sight words they have learned in a chart...separated into 3 different groups. Words in each group range in point value from 1-3. And then, I choose a keyword (such as a new animal or vocabulary word). The students then try to make a sentence with the keyword and a sight word of their choice. For every successful sentence, the student gets that many points (could be done in teams as well). Once the word is used, it cannot be used again (this is done easily in my class thanks to our interactive WBs...the students just cover up the words that have been used). Sometimes, I will also let a student choose the keyword. The students really like this way and can be very creative. I award an extra point if the students are particularly creative. As time goes on, the lists get huge! This game can go quickly if you want to just let them practice a few or it can take up a good chunk if you want to try and let them finish every word.
