Sight Word String-Ups are a kit that is sold on Amazon. It comes with four trays, a bag of letter beads, some pipe cleaners, and a bunch of flashcards.   I just use the beads and pipe cleaners. I also use my own flashcards, because that way we only wind up working on the words I consider to be the most important.
