If you are like me, you are always looking for new strategies to practice sight words. If you are looking for different ideas on how to practice sight words with your kids, you have come to the right place. I have teamed up with Emma from Clever Classroom, and Jennifer from Simply Kinder, to bring to you all sorts of ideas you can use when teaching your kids sight words!
1. Use shaving cream. Kids love the texture, and it is way more fun than writing the words using pencil and paper. I always buy the really cheap shaving cream as opposed to the gel kind because it is just more fluffy, and it feels better!
2. Get yourself some printables for your kiddos. Sometimes, a comprehensive review is great. However, students need repetition when it comes to sight words. If you don’t have a set, I made a sight word bundle with the First 100 sight words as printables you can use as you learn the sight words.

3. Play Sight Word Tick-Tack-Toe. Assign each partner a sight word instead of using X’s and O’s. I am a firm believer that children need repetition, and this game is perfect for that reason!
5. Embed sight words in your spiral review every single day. I created my Morning Work with an intentional review of sight words and sight word phrases. It is important that we not only focus on one word at a time, but also review many sight words on a daily basis. In this Morning Work, I have created a variety of daily practice activities that incorporate each sight word that is expected for the first grade curriculum. I have also included sight word phrases, so the children can still practice those important first grade sight words at the end of the year.
