Sight Words

These are sight words that pop up often as your child reads. 
The following is a list of 30 sight words that will be taught 
throughout the school year!

Here are some fun activities you can do to practice your sight words;

  • Write the words on index cards and hide them in a room and have your child go on a word hunt, find them, and read them.
  • Make up silly sentences with the words.
  • Spray shaving cream on the side of the bathtub, spread it around and have your child write the words in the shaving cream with their finger.
  • Put the cards in alphabetical order.
  • Sort them into piles according to the number of letters they have.
  • Sort them into piles according to the beginning letter.
  • Clap the word to find out how many parts there are in each one.
  • Give your child a newspaper article or one of my weekly newsletters and a yellow marker and let him/her be a word detective and highlight the sight words he/she sees.
  • Give your child an old magazine and have him/her cut out sight words he/she sees.
