    *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.
