Here’s a simple freebie that you can use to help your student practice sight words — a Valentine’s Day sight word activity.
Valentine’s Day Sight Word Activity
The instructions for this simple activity are the same as for my Fall sight word freebie:
1. Get your materials. You’ll need a do-a-dot marker (or something else to cover the words), a die, and a copy of the freebie. (See the bottom of the post to get yours.) In each heart, write a sight word you want your child to practice.
3. For one player — have him roll the die, find a matching number on the board, and read the word in the adjoining circle. If he reads the word correctly he can stamp it with a Do-a-Dot marker, cover it with a playing piece, or color it.
4. If you have two children at the same level, you can make this a two-person game. Have them take turns rolling the die and covering or coloring circles – but each of them should always use the same color. When every space is covered, each child counts his color to see who’s the winner. Since a lot depends on the roll of the die and not just skill, this can be a game you play with your child, too.
