Yours & Mine---Yellow and Orange Buzz Words

YOURS & MINE is a quick way to review and practice sight words. Remember, the more sight words you know, the easier and more fun reading becomes! In this fun grownup vs. student game students read sight words as quickly as they can. If read correctly, it is "yours" and placed on the "yours" side of the game card. If read incorrectly, it's "mine" and the adult or teacher keeps the card and places it on the "mine" side. Students count the cards at the end of the game and try to beat their score the next time they play. The score is recorded using either text or drawing tools. Click the orange check mark to keep this game as a DRAFT in your activities so you can play again and again. The next game can be played on the next slide in the activity or if all game cards have been played, simply reset the board by dragging the word cards back to the deck. The score can be erased using the eraser tool.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Teachers/adults supporting student learning can take notice of words not automatically/quickly read (cards in the “mine” pile as words to review frequently.) If you use Fry as your sight word list, yellow and orange words are #31-50 Fry words. The Fry Sight Words list is a more modern list of words than the Dolch list, and was extended to capture the most common 1,000 words. Dr. Edward Fry developed this expanded list in the 1950s (and updated it in 1980), based on the most common words to appear in reading materials used in Grades 3-9. Learning all 1,000 words in the Fry list would equip a child to read about 90% of the words in a typical book, newspaper, or website. The Fry words are listed by the frequency with which they occur and are often broken down into groups of 100. So the first 100 Fry words are the 100 most frequently occurring words in the English language. https://sightwords.com/sight-words/fry/ CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.3.C Read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does).
