Creative Ways to Practice Kindergarten Sight Words


Use fun materials like ping pong balls like we did in  our Sight Words Ping Pong Bounce Game.  (That was an activity that Little Guy LOVED…and he’s not even learning sight words yet!  Use those ping pong balls again for Sight Word Scooping and incorporate fine motor skills into sentence building. 

Something that you find in the junk drawer can be a learning tool.  String!  We used string to review sight words in Creative Sight Word Practice with String


The senses are an essential part of daily life.  Incorporate the senses into learning with a few fun ideas; Try a Sight Word Sensory Bin.  Another fun idea is using a sensory bottle to engage new readers.  I Spy Sight Word Sensory Bottle is a great way to calmly practice new words.  You can also go with the mess-free version of sensory input with No-Mess Sensory Sight Word Spelling.

Work on fine motor skills while practicing beginner sight words with a letter match.  This one went along with the book Bears on Wheels
by Stan Berenstain.  S
ight Word Manipulatives  used the same sight word cards in a hands-on learning activity.

We got moving with our Sight Word Scavenger Hunt.  More movement based learning happened when we incorporated the easel in Sight Word Sticky Easel.

A few more creative ways to learn:  Does your Kindergartener love all things art?  Try some stamping with Sight Word Bottle Cap Stampers
