Sight Words in a Bottle

Looks fun and it was!

Tried adding glitter. I didn't love it. It stuck to the sides. Some of the kids liked it though.

The flat sides did eliminate rolling and allowed copying. 

Determined shaking and deciphering required!
Proud completion. Note how much rice works best. 

I have had the bottles for this activity since last spring when I drank bottled Fiji water (for the flat-sided bottles of course). Then I got my husband to drag home the rice (hmm I think I mentioned this in my blog earlier).  Well I finally finished the center reporting sheet and used the bottles at a station - BIG SUCCESS!  The students rotated and shook the bottles trying to find all ten of the items and the 10 sight words in each bottle. I numbered 4 bottles with different items and words (with a master list for teacher checking if so desired). Now I can put the bottles on our Reading Workshop cart for the students to choose (they want to try all 4 bottles). I will put the reporting sheet on TPT for free. Well, I will when they reopen postings. They are temporarily down. OPENED:  My Store at Teachers Pay Teachers
