Learning sight words is such an important first step in literacy. Sight words are truly some of the first words a child will learn how to read. But how can you help your pre-ker with sight words?
- Have them listen for and repeat sight words.
This is especially fun to do while reading a story!
Seeing and practicing the same word over and over is one of the best ways for a child to truly learn their sight words.
- Sight Words in context
Seeing the sight words being used in a sentence so they have a meaning can also be extremely helpful for young learners.
There are so many songs out there for sight words! Some of our favorites are the color songs by frog street press! (Yes, colors are sight words!)
Play games with your child to help with recognition and repetition. Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHnfRZ-D0Aw for a fun game!
