It is so important that children not just learn how to decode words through phonics, but also learn those tricky words that just can't be sounded, which are sight words. It also helps their reading fluency.
I have found that it is best to find high engaging activities to help children learn their sight words. Some of the ways I teach sight words include:
Movement - Sight Word Cheers and Chants
Highlighting the Sight Words in printable books using a highlighter or in a regular book with highlighter tape.
Playing sight word learning games! You can grab this one free until November 5th on my Facebook page by clicking the pictures and then liking my page. Next click on Fan Freebies under more. It is editable so you can edit the sight words to what you want them to be! I used the first 48 Fry words.
How do you teaching sight words to make them fun for your students? Share in the comments below!
