Today I’m excited to share another easy sight word activity with you to use with your littles. With all of the teaching supplies in all of the stores this month, I’ve been picking up some extra things here and there to add to the “mommy school” closet. One thing I picked up a bunch of are these library card pockets. I grabbed two packs with plans for sight word and word family practice.
The sight word practice is what we started with.
All you’ll need for this activity is the library cards, a sharpie, popsicle sticks and tape. I love how the outside of the library pockets have a space to write something, it was perfect for sight word practice.
I got the pre-k sight words together and one by one wrote them on the library cards.
Once that was done, I used double sided tape to tape them onto a piece of card stock.
From there, I filled out the popsicle sticks with the letters on them to make each word.
Once each page was complete, I hole punched it and added it to a binder.
I have all of the sight words in one binder. The popsicle sticks for each word are kept in the pockets.
I keep the binder in our learning closet and it’s an activity we do once a week.
AG will usually do two or three pages at a time.
For this activity, we continue to focus on letter recognition, letter sounds, blends and making words.
I start the activity asking her to identify letters, tell me their sounds and then we move into blending and sounding out words. After a little guided instruction, she plays/ practices independently.
You can even add in math to this lesson by counting the number of e’s that are on the page or adding and taking away letters.
Next, I’ll be working on a word family binder using the left over library cards!
