Popcorn Word Bottles (freebie)

Another activity that Mrs. Morrow sent to me.  I found some different clipart and inserted my words. 

To make them, I copied these popcorn words and laminated them.  I would recommend putting the words on both sides of the picture because it can be difficult to get it turned just right to see the words.  I put them into water bottles filled with corn kernels.  I wrote the number on the lid of the bottle and superglued them shut.

**UPDATE - I actually found that the "Naked" juice bottles are awesome for this (and incredibly yummy).  I also switched to popped popcorn to make it be less noisy when they shake the bottles.
The students color in each word as they find it in the bottle and record them on the lines.

As always, let me know if you would like the publisher version.

These are SUPER cute! I am always looking for ideas to help reinforce our sight words and get the students writing too. I would love the publisher version if you don't mind. Thanks!

I LOVE THIS! Would you mind sending me the publisher version so I can put our sight words into it? Our grade level LOVES your double check paper. I even have motions and a chant that my kids do with it! Thanks for all of your ideas!
