All homework is due back on Friday.
Sight Word Activities 1. Sight word Twister: Fill each circle with a target sight word, letter of the alphabet, number, etc... (so many fun possibilities for this!) 2. Sight Word Discovery Bottles: Fill a bottle with sand and type up the sight words and have them shake the bottle to find the words. 3. Shaving Cream: Use shaving cream to write and say the sight words. 4. Catch a Sight Word: Use a beach ball and write the words on the ball.
