Maisy received her first two lists of sight words from Kindergarten this week. I’m trying to find creative and fun ways to practice these words to keep it exciting and engaging.
So, I whipped out the dry erase markers and up to her big mirror in her room we went! I wrote out 5-6 sight words on the mirror and asked her to write on her mirror (On her mirror! Not only did she get to look at herself make funny faces, which she loves, she got to write on the “walls” of her room!). She loved this. I asked her to find a certain word, then re-write it underneath the word. She made a running list on her own. After three rounds of this I changed it up a bit before she could get bored.
I then wrote a sentence using her sight words and she read it. She was very pleased that she could read a whole sentence. Then I traded out words that she’d read again.
Maisy said she loved this activity and wants to do it again tomorrow. Deal! Yay for finding fun engaging learning activities.
