Immy is well and truly on the road to learning to read, arriving home from school with her very first levelled reader last week!
As I have shared previously, learning to automatically recognise high frequency sight words is an important part of learning to read as automatic recall positively influences reading fluency, which in turn aids clearer comprehension – you can read more about the importance of sight words to reading in this post – What Are Sight Words?
Providing lots of opportunity for children to revisit sight words is important to the development of automatic recall but this repetition doesn’t have to be boring, in fact the 50 sight word activity ideas included in the list below are most definitely not boring!
But before we get to the list, if your child loves playing games or learns best through fun and engaging activities (and don’t we all), please take a moment to check out our printable, no prep sight word games pack. Great for home revision, classroom literacy groups or withing learning support settings.
