High Five Hands

I love Pinterest!!!

I was browsing through Pinterest and came across Growing Kinders pin, High 5 Sight Words. Even though their post was dated 2012, I have never seen it.

I think it is a great idea for practicing sight words. Kathleen, at Growing Kinders, uses a Silhouette Cameo to cut out hands. Then she writes sight words on them and hangs them on the wall by the door. The kids high five and say the words when they go out. What a fun way to practice sight words!

Please read to the end of my blog to print out hand patterns.

Some of the comments on her blog had wonderful ideas! I like the idea of laminating the hands and putting a vinyl pocket on it to slip in a new words each week.

I also like the idea of adding velcro to the hands. That would make it easy to switch out the new words each week. If you have hand die cuts you can easily cut out a stack of hands.

Someone mentioned using numbers, words, letters, etc on the hands. I love all the ideas!

Since I do not have a Silhouette Cameo, I decided to make some hand patterns and a recording sheet to share with you. I made 2 small hands, left and right. Also, 2 large hands, left and right hand patterns. You can choose the ones that fit your needs.

I made a recording sheet, left hands, right hands, and mixed hands if you would like your students to practice writing the words, numbers, etc. on paper after they high five them.

Print them out on colored paper, construction paper, card stock, cut them out and laminate them. Choose any of the ways explained above to use your hands.

Have a wonderful day!
