Learn Sight Words with a Water Game!
All through first grade, teachers will work hard to help your child learn as many “sight” words as possible. Sight words are short words that appear again and again in our language that children should recognize instantly, and learning them thoroughly is a big boost for any young reader. Here’s an outdoor activity that uses chalk and a wet sponge to help reinforce recognition of common written words and assists your child's spelling abilities. This is a great game for a hot, summer day and a great way to build their spelling and reading skills!
What You Need:
- Sidewalk Chalk
- Pail of Water
- 6” damp sponges
- Several energetic first graders
