Every day YC comes home with a key ring of sight words that she needs to practice. Once she has learnt them, new words are added to the ring. She is very good at memorising them, but simply pulling out the key ring and reading them out is rather boring. To make learning them slightly more interesting we did an activity with hidden sight words for her to find.

You will need:

  • Paper
  • A white crayon
  • Colouring pens

On the piece of paper write as many sight words as you can.

The object of the activity is that they have to uncover these hidden sight words by colouring in the paper. When they reveal a new word they have to read it out.

YC finding all her words.

Yes, doing it this way does take a lot longer than simply reading the words off of the key ring, but YC had much more fun doing it this way and hopeful doing it this way every once in a while, will encourage her with her reading.
