Fun Sight Words Practice for Kids

Fun sight words game for kids

 

Well can you believe my little darlings are still not in school?  I feel like the last man standing here as we have one more week of summer vacation.

I have really been cramming in the sight word practice for both my 5 year old and 7 year old the past few weeks so they are fresh and ready to start school.

But you can only do flashcards and writing it out and spelling aloud so many times and it gets so boring for them.  So I decided to have a little fun with some words and make it a game to try to get them interested in learning.

If you have little ones that are trying to memorize lists of sight words, this might be something you consider trying with your kiddos.

There will be 2 Build and Grow Clinics at Lowe’s in September.

The first is on September 13th and your kids will make a pair of binoculars.

The second event is on September 27th and your kids will make a fire truck.

Each event will be held at 10am.  Registration will be open for the first clinic starting this Monday.  I wanted to go ahead and give you the heads up now as these do get filled up quickly. It is usually best to sign up early.  I think since the kids are back in school now and people are home for the weekends, these will probably fill up especially quickly.

 The kids should get an apron, all the supplies for the clinic and a few other goodies.

And you can learn more about the August event here
