To use: simply print the words you have taught your students. Assess the students one on one. Place a mark on the words they can read. The students then color and cut out the words they read (gold coins so color them yellow or gold). They also color and cut out the pot.
Glue the post onto a large piece of white construction paper. Glue the coins in the pot to fill your sight words pot of gold. Students write their name on the BACK of the paper.
If you want to easily differentiate for students who might not recognize as many words simply make it a visual matching assessment. Write the sight words on index cards and show them the word. Then have them point to that word. Last mark that coin as a word they can put in their pot of gold. The students will color and cut out the words they recognized.
Another differentiation option is to use the editable template for letter recognition. Students can identify the letters to earn their coins.
