Find the Sight Words
Language & Literacy
On your mark, get set, READ! This activity can significantly improve your child’s reading fluency and comprehension, and will allow them to devote their energy to decoding more difficult words.
Coloured pens, pencils or crayons
Masking tape OR sticky tape
- If you do not have a single large piece of paper, you can join multiple letter-size paper together using sticky tape.
- Write out a large variety of sight words on the paper. Write the words in various colours and in different directions, i.e. horizontally, diagonally, etc.
- Tape the paper to the wall using masking tape.
Sight word examples
Are. And. Of. The. But. Not. What. Were. Can. How. To, etc.
Finding the sight words
- Choose 7 to 10 sight words for your child to find.
- Call out these sight words and ask your child to circle them.
- Ask your child to read out the sight word(s) each time they find and circle them.
Increase or decrease the complexity of the ‘words’ to suit your child’s age and reading ability. For older children, ask them to start defining the words as they find them.
