Candle Sight Word Activity

Beginning readers pick a sight word card, choose the number of toilet paper rolls that corresponds with the number of letters in the word, and then spell the word by choosing the appropriate letter popsicle stick to place in each roll. The final product is a candle, lit with a letter flame, which spells the word on the card.
