Glow in the Dark Sight Words
I know that I’m not the only one who loves to buy anything colourful, anything cute or anything new from the stationary section at the store – even if it’s from Woolworths… which is where I bought my Neon Sharpies! I must have been bored one day, ’cause I read the text on the packet in which my new and unused sharpies were encased. And then my heart jumped a beat – “fluoresces under black light”. Black light… hmm… hadn’t I just seen some guy on Facebook showing how to make black light with an iPhone? Yes, I had! But I needed something much better than an iPhone light. After a remarkable effort of cleaning out the garage, my hubby finally found the camping flashlight – I was overjoyed! I got to work making the black light using the instructions I found on Instructables – thank you, Google search 😉
And then I had fun with some sight words printables! I mean, how cool do the sight words word find pages look??! Even though the blue and pink didn’t do well under the black light, the other colours looked marvelous!
I also bought some “fluro” paint to use on my sight word q-tip printables… clearly the purple and pink didn’t “fluoro” very well, but at least the yellow and green did their job!
Once dry, you can attach the q-tip sight word cards to the walls (ceiling, maybe?!?) and give your kiddos some small black light flashlights and a copy of the FREE printable below, and you’ve got yourself a super-duper fun write the room activity!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you liked this glow in the dark sight word idea and that it is something you can use in your classroom or home!
