Teaching Sight Words
Sight words are best taught with repetition. Most children will need to see and say a word several times before the word is committed to memory. There are many ways to teach the words. Try to make it as interesting for the children as you can.
Flashcards, worksheets and easy books are all great ways. When possible, present the new word with a picture. This helps the children retain the information.
One idea is to create wall posters. Write the word in large letters at the top of the page and then look through magazines for pictures or draw a picture to help the child identify the word. Place the poster in an area where the child will see it frequently.
Another way is to use games. Concentration, Match Game and Go Fish can all be played using sight words. Games are great for teaching as children learn better when they are having fun.
My grandson is currently learning sight words and it's interesting when he notices the sight words in conversation. He will stop in the middle of a sentence and point out that he just used a sight word!
