I bought eight packages of them so that I would have back-up when some die. I put them in a little basket on my reading table. Perfect for tracking words early in the year! I used these with my guided reading groups by challenging the kids to light up our focus sounds on the pages in their books.
Here are some other ideas for ways to use these lights to enhance reading lessons:
- Find punctuation then read sentences with proper inflection
- Finding contractions
- Sight words
- Highlighting the evidence in text
- Text features
- Main idea and supporting details
I hope that this gives you some ideas for ways that you can light up your reading! Have a terrific week!
