The Sneetches

After reading The Sneetches. Have the students sit in a circle with their chairs. Pass out Stars to each student with sight words on them. The stars you call are the "cool" stars and they can switch places with the other "cool" stars you called. The "plain" Stars have to wait. Keep switching stars and sight words. This is a fun game and great for sight word recognition. As the game progresses and more sight words are added the students can see how it's more fun to include everyone.

Make finger puppets and have the students retell the story of the sneetches.
