These are sight words that pop up often as your child reads.

Here are some fun activities you can do to practice your popcorn 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 popcorn words he/she sees.
Give your child an old magazine and have him/her cut out popcorn words he/she sees.
Have fun with these ideas.
I will send other ideas home throughout the year.
