Trash or treasure? Write sight words on paper, crumple, kids un-crumple, and read word. sight words are treasure, nonsense words are trash. Or write words down and have the kids crumple the nonsense words to work on hand strength.
Sight Word Pounding: a toy hammer, golf tees, a permanent marker and sheets of styrofoam. Write letters, numbers or sight words on the styrofoam and have them hammer the golf tee into the correct answer. Great for active boys.
This activity helps kids learn sight words while also developing fine motor skills. To increase the level of complexity, challenge kids to build sentences out of these words! (Idea from Kinder Journey.) What wonderful way to work on sight words!
SO fun for centers: Post-A-Word: A Sight Word Scavenger Hunt. Select list of words and write them on the board. Write letters on post it notes and stick them around the room. The kids find the letters and build the words on the board. Sounds like fun!
