I love to use a variety of sight word games and activities to help my children learn to read!
When practicing basic sight words for Kindergarten, my 5 year old is having a great time with this set of Pre-Primer Sight Word Puzzle Cards.
This set is similar to the CVC Matching Puzzle Cards that she’s used over and over.
Use Puzzle Cards to Practice Basic Sight Words for Kindergarten
We use (and love!) All About Reading and adore their readers. However, my Kindergartner needs quite a bit of reinforcement, so I made her a set of puzzle cards to practice the Pre-Primer Dolch words.
Here are a few suggestions for using your own set of puzzle cards. Give these a whirl and see if they are effective for your kiddos too:
→ Scissor Skills – After printing, have your child help you cut them out. Be warned that the extra squiggly lines are hard!
→ Simple Matching – Simply match sight word to sight word.
→ As Writing Practice – After your child makes a match, have her write the word on paper or dry erase board. Set a goal of matching and writing 3 cards (or 5 or 7)
→ Group by Beginning Letter – After matching all of the cards, have your child sort them by beginning letter
→ Place in Alphabetical Order – After your child matches 3 sets of cards, help her put them in alphabetical order
→ As Review – Once your child has mastered this set of sight words, use these cards as a fun review. And then move on to the Primer Puzzle Cards (coming soon!)
For best results, print on card stock and then laminate.
Note: These cards are intentionally left black & white to save on printer ink.
