Buzz Words Activity

One of my students brought animal crackers for our snack. They came in this cute bear container. I could not "bear" the idea of throwing it out (and I could not resist that pun). I just knew I could come up with a use for it.  I decided to use it for a sight word game to go along with the Honey Bee and the Robber.

I made these cards, which I will print on card stock and laminate. The cards will go inside of the bear. The students will pull out a card. If they pull a sight word they will read the word. If they read it correctly they can keep the card. If they do not read it correctly they will need to put it back into the container. If they pull a "buzz" card they have been stung and will have to put all of their cards back into the container.

I am going to cut out the title, which is at the bottom of the document, to fit over the label on the container.

I was not able to get this activity completed in time to use with our unit this year, but I can't wait to use it next year! I plan to create more cards to help fill up the bear container. I will post an update on this activity in the future.
