Word Activities

Here are some activities to do with your child if he/she is really anxious to learn to read and write some sight words. Learning to read should be fun, but if your child can't remember the letter names or the sounds each letter makes then some of these activities may be too difficult or frustrating. Try some letter activities first then come back to these word activities another time.

Practice "Phonemic Awareness" and "Sound-Symbol" Matching
http://www.professorgarfield.org/Phonemics/farmIntro2.html
Have fun rhyming, blending sounds, segmenting, and matching sounds!

Links to More Online Stories to Practice Reading

Play "What's the Word?" in your car or in a line anywhere!
Say a one-syllable word sound by sound (not letter by letter)
and see if your child can hear the sounds and blend them into a word.
Parent: "c...a...t" What's the word?"
Child: "c...a...t"   "cat"
Parent: "s...t...o...p" What's the word?"
Child: "s...t...o...p"   "stop"

Print 30 words to learn - on labels or plain paper.
(formatted to fit Avery labels   5160   30/page   1" x 2 5/8")
25 Kdg Words + by, of, are, play, she

Print the list above and play "What's The Word?" You sound out one of the words sound by sound and your child guesses which word it is and points to it. (Skip the sight words for this game since their letter sounds don't make a word that makes sense. Instead, you can say a sight word such as, "the, you, of, do" etc and ask your child to point to it and say the word.)
