Help your Kindergarten student grow his knowledge of sight words by the following activities:
Online Spelling: Practice our kindergarten spelling lists by importing them into your free family account. They contain many sight words that will help your student become more familiar with these common words.
Target Practice: Go to the library and get books with common sight words. Get stickers from an office supply store that are designed to be taken off (the stickers that are used to mark signature locations). Then work with your child to put arrows in the book on common sight words. This is a fun activity that helps with word recognition.
Memory Game: Get some index cards and write down some sight words in pairs. Then put them on the floor face down and flip two cards over at a time until you find matches. This game helps with word recognition and it’s something you can do as a family too!
Rhyme Game: Take a common ending like “un” and add consonants to the beginning. First, create a flash card deck of letters a-z using index cards. Then on another card write endings like “un” or “oat” etc. Then start trying consonants in front of them. Help your child read the words as needed. As you find real words, keep score of how many your student found.
At the beginning of the week, you might sit down and have a team meeting about what you hope to accomplish this week with your student. This will help your child be a part of the learning process and learn planning and organizational skills as well as goal setting.
Special Note: It is helpful for your Kindergarten student to feel a sense of accomplishment. All of your activities should involve praise and parent / caregiver involvement. Some kids really like to have a sticker board on the refrigerator or somewhere in a public place where they can show how well they’ve done. Create a grid with game names, books read, practice times and award gold stars for your child to place on the board.
