sight-words2

We have been working on reading and writing for the last couple of weeks. I read about sight words somewhere and I thought it was a great idea. Basically you just write down your child’s favourite and most used words on small bits of paper and stick them all together with a hole punch and a binder ring. We use them for practicing writing, reading and as a little reminder of what’s important right now. Incidentally, they become a little archive of current affairs – kindergarten style. We have Tin Tin, the names of people in our family, valentine, from (for writing valentines), cookie, robot and chalk as some of our most used words.
