Finding playful ways to practice sight words has been a way we’ve turned an activity that my son dreaded into something he (usually) likes. Try setting aside flashcards and playing a paper plane game for sight words instead – I guarantee it’ll be more fun!
We made paper airplanes (check out how Tinkerlab made them here). Then we wrote out sight word “Pilots.” We stuck the pilots inside the planes, and raced them.
There are several opportunities to review the words as you play. My son read the words as we wrote them, then as we decided which words were going to go into which plane, when the “pilot” was placed in the plane, and then when we saw which pilot won.
