Learning sight words can be fun and exciting with this system!  Just $3 for years of use!!  Check out the full description below the links!!!  🙂

Order at TpT Link: Sight Words – Work Hard for the Money ($3 – TpT)

OR ..

Order HERE! Sight Words – Work Hard for the Money! (.pdf file)

24 pages: -folder label templates: just print, add names, and glue to folders! -sight word money: 100 prepared sight words money/flash cards, 1 page of blank money/flash cards – print on green paper! -time cards: 3 weeks per time cards (2 time cards per sheet), "positions" include Word Review, Word Manager, and ABC CEO - print on colored paper, add the name/date and fill out! -2 promotion certificates: one for Word Manager promotion, one for ABC-CEO promotion!



All you need is colored paper, file folders, scissors, and some glue!   Print all the sheets on the colors of your choice, then cut and put together the folders.  I have shown my assembled ones below!

This is a fun and interactive tool to encourage students to learn sight words while “earning” sight word money!

I have included in the file:

time cards (students can start as Word Reviewers and be promoted to Word Managers and even ABC CEOs!  There are stars on the promoted time cards to designate their position at Sight Word, Inc.!)

sight word money (100 sight words, PLUS 1 page designated to blank sight word money so that you can write your own!)

labels for front and inside of folders (students can write their own names or the teacher can prepare this part!)

promotion certificates (two certificates have been included for when students are promoted to Word Manager and ABC-CEO!)


100 Words:
the, of, and, a, to, in, is, you, that, it, he, was, for, on, are, as, with, his, they, I, at, be, this, have, from, or, one, had, by, words, but, not, what, all, were, we when, your, can, said, there, use, an, each, which, she, do, how, their, if, will, up, other, about, out, many, then, them, these, so, some, her, would, make, like, him, into, time, has, look, two, more, write, go, see, number, no, way, could, people, my, than, first, water, been, called, who, am, its, now, find, long, down, day, did, get, come, made, may, part

Next, you just have to determine how you will use this system….

-How many times do they have to get the word correct to “earn” the money?

-Will you have a designated “shopping day” in the classroom for the students to spend their money?   (A redemption stamp could be used to stamp the front or back of the money to show that it has been used and still keep the money in the pocket… maybe even put a pocket on the back for money that has been redeemed!)

-Will you promote the students from reviewer to manager to CEO?  Will you have shiney star stickers to place on the promoted time cards?

So much fun and learning to be had!  Enjoy!!   And leave some comments below!  🙂 🙂
