Hello! Welcome to another resource-filled edition of Mom’s Library! Did your children receive books for Christmas? Ours did, and it’s great to see their interest in them! A trip to the library today for more was foiled as it was closed because of a power failure. But we’ll pack up again in the morning and try again. With all of these new books, Kallista is really trying to learn to read, and Tristan is learning new words every day. Phonics are great, but not every word can be worked out in this way. Learning words by sight is also important for fluency. Today my focus is on some fun ways for kids to have some sight word practice.
No, you’re not seeing things…Crystal’s Tiny Treasures has changed to Castle View Academy. My “Tiny Treasures” are growing up fast, and a new name was needed. All of our content has migrated with us, so don’t worry about a thing. We’re glad to have you join us!
If you missed last week’s round-up, I featured Snowman Fun. Have a look through and be inspired! This resource for Moms is packed full of parenting tips, activities for children, crafts, recipes and more!
Sight Word Practice
Growing Book By Book has a fun seasonal sight word game, that is easily adapted for learning the alphabet or other ideas.
I like this easy idea for Popping sight-words to create fun sentences! Make a day’s theme of it and the kids will be hopping for more fun. Victoria’s guest post for his is on Enchanted Homeschooling Mom.
Sugar Aunts has a colourful way for kids to learn sight words using balloons!
And for more fun and easy ways to help children learn to read with sight words, Jenae’s “I Can Teach My Child To Read! A 10-Step Guide For Parents” is a must-have for every parent in my opinion. You can see our review here.
