Sight word tattoos! Using washable ink, stamp the sight word on their hand for them to tell mom and dad what the word(s) of the week are!
My kiddos love this one! (Sorry the picture isn't great) Underneath the blue flap, I have a post-it note with a new "password" every day. This week, I am doing both a letter and a sight word. The children lift up the flap and tell me what the word/letter is when they come in.
Word wall from last year (I have a separate wall for realia this year)
Word wall from this year (I like this one MUCH better!) I got a new magnetic whiteboard this year, so the children can remove the words if they need to, and then put them back. I can also quickly write words on there if I need to! The children's names are also not on there this year - I have a separate wall for those too. (The cars right next to it). This picture is from before school started..there are no words on their yet. I add the words as I introduce them - it is much more meaningful for the children, and they can easily find the word they are looking for.
