Does your child learn sight words? I know not everyone likes them, but I also know that they’ve helped my daughter’s reading skills immensely. She doesn’t need to painstakingly sound out each word anymore. Of course, she does still do her fair share of sounding out, but that’s balanced with the sight words she recognizes because we play with them several days a week.
Notice that I’m talking about Fun and Simple Sight Word Activities that are hands-on, sensory, and involve fine and gross motor skills, not just flashcards or vocabulary lists! There’s still a place for flash cards for sure (in fact, I offer a few sets for download), but we try to use them in fun, engaging ways.
Below, you’ll find the sight word activities we’ve done so far. I’ll be adding new ones frequently, so make sure to sign up to my weekly newsletter to avoid missing any of them!
Here are the same activities in list form – I sometimes find it easier to find what I’m looking for in a list like this 🙂
