Sight Word Puzzle

2.3 based on 16 ratings

What You Need:

  • A 100-piece puzzle
  • A permanent black marker with extra fine point
  • A list of sight words that your child needs to know (Ask for one from your child’s teacher or use some from the list below.)

What You Do:

  1. Spread out the puzzle pieces on a flat surface, and flip each piece over to the back side.
  2. Use the marker to write a sight word on the back of each puzzle piece. (Note: Your child can assist with this step, too. Just be sure that each word is written neatly, clearly and with correct spelling.)
  3. Now, have your child put the puzzle together! After he reads a word on a puzzle piece, he may flip it over to look at the image on the other side and add it to the puzzle. If it’s a hard word for him, tell him what it is, but leave it with the word visible so he can come back to it later. Soon, the puzzle will be finished, and so will your child’s sight word practice!

Some common first grade sight words include: the, from, at, him, her, she, that, there, is, it, in, you, your, out, are, give, by, put, what, look, little, let, some, has, going, as, for, had, how, then, my, said.
