FUN WAYS TO HELP YOUR CHILD WITH SIGHT WORDS:
*Make sight words out of playdough
*Place some shaving cream on counter top. Allow students to write their sight words in shaving cream. (We do this in class and they love it!)
*Play Uh-Oh! Write all sight words on index cards. Write the word "Uh-Oh" on a few index cards. Put all cards into a bowl. Students will reach in and pull out a card. If they can read the word, they get to keep the card. If they can't read the word, they must put it back in the bowl. If they pull an "Uh-oh" card, they must put back all the cards they have collected. This is also great to practice numbers and letters!
*Get a white board from Wal-mart. Write the words with a dry erase maker, read the word, then erase!
*Cut letters out of magazines to make sight words.
*Write sight words on paper fairly large. Let your child glue cheerios, beans, or pasta over the lines to make the words.
*Paint sight words with watercolors.
*Use beans, pasta, or rice to form your sight words. Glue them on construction paper or tagboard.
*Play Hopscotch with sight words. Write a sight word in each square and then say the words as you hop from square to square.
