A fun and engaging sight word activity to reinforce spelling and reading sight words. A great hands-on literacy center that is perfect for your morning word, morning tubs, small group work.
To teach sight words to our kindergarten students, I try to use as many ways as possible to get them practicing. We trace, write, build, make, and anything else we can think of! Those little hands have to keep busy, and they learn best when they have hands-on centers that they can interact with.
I try to keep this in mind when I am creating new activities for our kindergarten class, and I think that Sight Word Laundry is great for this.
Students pick a sight word sock and then have to spell out the words using the letter shirts. I added a ribbon and some colourful clothespins (affiliate link)to add fine motor practice to this center.
You can add this activity to your dramatic play center, sensory bin, fine motor station, literacy center, small world play or anywhere to make learning fun in your classroom!
Our students loved using the clothespins to string up the sight words, and they did a great job making each of the sight words.
How many sight words do your kindergarten students learn in kindergarten? We do one a week!
