Sight word activity with balloons:
I started by writing Big Sister’s sight words on the sticky side of masking tape, using a black marker. I taped these to balloons that were already blown up.
That’s it! When Big Sister saw the balloons with tape on them, she was very curious. It didn’t take her long to figure out that there were words written on the tape. Using the black marker makes it easy to see and read the words through the balloons.
She held the balloons up to her face to better read the sight words. This was a fun way to identify the the words.
