I would add to the saying "when two vowels go walking the first one does the talking and USUALLY says its name." this will give the students the decoding strategy that if the vowel name doesn't work try the short vowel sound... one or the other should handle most words. Also I would put these up on the blackboard while using them but not on the wall.
Fun and memorable activity to enhance student sight words skills. Teacher can say a word and students will swat the word mentioned by the teacher. This is a great form of assessment, to assess students knowledge about the different sight words.
