As we work on our spelling lists, here are some fun ways to study at home!
Wordo—Played just like the game Bingo, but this version uses sight words instead of numbers on a grid card.
Concentration—Sight word concentration cards can easily be made using index cards. Simply write each word on two cards, shuffle and lay face down to play.
Word Searches—Create word searches featuring sight words or use one of the many available on the Internet.
Go Fish—Go fish cards can easily be made using index cards. Simply write each word on two cards, shuffle and deal to play.
Playdough Words-Using playdough, have your child roll (make “snakes”) one letter at a time to spell the sight word. Your child can practice saying the sight word as he/she rolls it.
Sand Words-Using a metal baking sheet, sprinkle some sand (or salt or cornstarch) onto it so a thin layer is created. Ask your child to choose a word and write the word in the sand using his/her pointer finger. Ask your child to say the word created in the sand. Shake the tray carefully to erase the word.Shaving Cream Words-Using a counter or table top, squirt some shaving cream onto the level surface and smooth out to a thin layer. Ask your child to choose a word and write the word in the shaving cream using his/her pointer finger. Ask your child to say the word. Smooth hand over the shaving cream to erase the word.
