I am always looking for fun ways to work on early reading skills with the kids. This week we played a few sight word games with plastic bottle caps to review letter blends we’ve been working on.
The first activity we did was a simple word sort.
We have been working on the following diagraphs: “sh,” “ch,” and “th.”
Using a permanent marker, I wrote several words on the plastic lids that used each of the diagraphs.
I also labeled three small plastic containers (pudding cups from the recycling box) with Post-It Notes containing the matching letter blends. (You could also write it in permanent marker, but I want o use our containers for other activities later.)
The goal was to sort the words into the correct container. As they sorted the words we practiced making the sounds for the letter blends.
You could do this activity with any letter blends your child is working on. I plan on adding to our bottle cap word collection throughout the year as we work on new diagraphs and blends.
The next day we used our bottle caps to play this sight word game.
