Go Sight Word "Island Hopping"!
First grade readers spend hours and hours on “sight” words—you know, the ones that show up constantly in books, and that often don’t follow regular spelling rules. You can always use flash cards, but as your kid will tell you, these can get old … fast!
Here’s another way to go. All you need is chalk and some pavement for this silly, fun, and practical game. A parent can play with one child, or for more fun, try it at a playdate or birthday party with a whole group of kids divided into teams.
What You Need:
- Colored chalk
- Stretch of pavement
- A few index cards and a permanent marker
- 1-8 first graders
