Sight words. It’s a term that every Kindergarten teacher knows and most likely uses in his/her classroom. Sight words are very important to beginning readers, as sight words make up the majority (up to 75%) of beginning children’s print materials. And since many sight words cannot be sounded out or decoded, teaching students to identify and ‘read’ sight words, makes reading fluently more attainable, since students recognize words automatically.
Sight words are a majority of the core to kindergarten literacy curriculum. Because of this, the activities need to be exciting and have variety. So I went on the hunt to fill my Sight Word Activity Idea Bank and decided to share my favorites with you.
We created this fun sight word activity using blocks from the Target Dollar Spot. How fun is that? And my favorite part is that it was inexpensive! Download the FREE Response sheet HERE!!
