I'm sharing all about Samson's Classroom today; a website my students and I love using for sight word and reading practice.
With Samson's Classroom, your students can practice sight words, spelling, reading fluency, and reading comprehension in such a fun way, they won't even know they're learning.
In the sight word section, students choose a word list to practice.
In step 2, they build the words.
In step 4, they practice spelling the words.
And in step 5, they practice using their new words in sentences.
Immediate feedback is given to the students in each activity and prompts are provided when needed. Students can also click "hear again" to have a word repeated.
Samson's Classroom tracks each student's progress, so I can go into my teacher dashboard and view my student's sight word progress.
In the reading section, students can choose from 5 different reading levels and earn carnival hammer swings for mastering passages.
All of the passages are timed and include reading comprehension questions students must answer. Samson provides immediate feedback and another feature I love is if students need a hint or a little help, he will highlight the area in the text where the answer can be found.
You can also track spelling progress in the teacher dashboard and the dashboard is so clear cut and user-friendly!

Here are some of my students engaged in Samson's Classroom!
I've piloted and used many websites in my classroom over my last 10 years of teaching, and Samson's Classroom is by far one of mine and my student's favorites for sight word and reading practice and I can't wait to implement the Spelling component next year. I love the simplicity of it, for both the teacher and the student, yet the immediate feedback and engagement it provides and the progress my students have made!
