First Grade students in Mrs. Sheryl Rush’s class at Sumter County Primary review sight words daily. The students are shown playing sight word BINGO. In sight word BINGO, students learn to recognize common sight words. Each time a sight word is called out that is on their card, the student covers the word with a marker. When the markers line up to make a complete row, the student calls, ‘BINGO’. This game helps students recognize words in a fun way. Pictured from left to right are high school volunteer, Mary Nell Rush, Laurynn Hart, Ava Hobbs, and Chace Sanford.
