Popcorn Words

Popcorn Words are words that "pop" up everywhere: in books, magazines, newspapers, signs, cereal boxes, TV - you name it!  Also known as sight words, these are words that we should be able to read quickly, without having to sound them out.  We have been working with the kindergarten list of 25 words that we'll need to know by the end of kindergarten.  To practice our popcorn words, we've been playing games, working in literacy stations and writing them in many different ways.  We even write them in shaving cream - what a messy way to practice!  Working with these words at home will help reinforce what we're doing in school.  Let's all get popping!

    Ms. Conway,

    The Shaving cream was awesome! I liked it because we made words with it and it was so much fun!
