How to Make Fun Sight Word Jewelry

Posted by Erica Warren on

As the saying goes, "Out of sight out of mind." Well, now tricky sight words can remain "in sight" and tailored to each individual student's needs.

Kids love to make and wear their own jewelry. So, here is a fun project that your students will be sure to enjoy that will also help them to master difficult sight words. Links can be added or subtracted as they come across new, challenging words and master others.

DIY sight word jewelry

Here is the process:

Materials:

  • contact paper
  • permanent markers
  • paper clips
sight words

    Steps:

    • Step one: Cut the contact paper into small strips.
    • Step two: Write the difficult sight words onto the contact paper.
    • Step three: Peal of the backing and wrap the contact paper around one of the paper clips.
    • Step four: Link another paper clip onto the first and then wrap your next sight word onto the new link.
    • Step five: Continue the process until it is long enough for a bracelet or necklace.
    I hope you enjoy this project.

    I would love to hear your thoughts!!
