Do you have a budding reader at home? Learning sight words is not intuitive – you cannot sound them out like you can other simple words or CVC words. Sometimes, an extra activity to practice reading (or writing) these difficult words can really help children! Today, I am sharing our Snowman sight words cards that can help children to learn these tricky words in a fun way!
Snowman Sight Word Printables
Age: 3-6 (likely 5+)
Why: You can use these cards to help children practice reading sight words. Sight words are common words that are used the most frequently. However, these words do not tend to follow rules of phonics that one would typically use, or have exceptions to spelling rules. Because of this, children are sometimes encouraged to learn sight words by memorizing them.
You can use materials like this to help children remember and practice reading sight words.
How to use our snowman printables
There are many ways you can use this single set of cards! Here is an overview of some of the materials you can use! You can use this one set to create many different types of works to keep children engaged.
1. Read them
Of course, introduce these cards and simply practice reading them together! Take turns, or have the child (or children) read them together.
2. Match them or play memory
You can print two sets of cards and use them as a matching work. Children will have an opportunity to practice reading and seeing the spelling of the words.
3. Use with a writing tray
You can have the child practice writing the words with a writing tray. Dr. Montessori believed that the hand is essential to learning. When children practice writing in this way, they really are likely to remember spelling!
4. Use with a chalkboard
Or you can present a chalkboard for the children to practice writing. Don’t forget to provide a stand and an eraser.
