Print the flashcards on card stock, you can also laminate them to make it more durable, punch a hole in a corner and use a Leaf Ring Binder Key Ring
. This way you can always have it handy. You can easily throw it in your purse and while waiting for an appointment or waiting in line, your child can practice their sight words. You can also print these on card stock and laminate, so your child can use it over and over again. I've always used sheet protectors to save money. Let your child say the sight words to you while tracing.
Ways to use the matching cards :
1. Matching game.
2. Hide and seek a sight word - make it an active fun by playing this game in your living room. Spread and hide all the sight words.
3. I spy a sight word. If you are teaching more than one child, make it a game and whoever finds the most matching sight words wins!
4. Sight word sticks. Paste the sight words on a Popsicle stick. Let your child stick the matching sight words on a block of Styrofoam.
5. Cut and Paste. If your child is ready , let her/him cut the sight words and paste the matching sight words in a piece of copy paper. You can even make a mini lap book.
Make it fun and engaging! Take the child's lead and practice the sight words when you can.
