Here are a couple of fun ways to learn those all important sight words.
1. Using ‘wiki sticks’ – these coloured, malleable and slightly sticky objects can easily be bent into letter shapes and words. Then they can be reused!
The tactile properties of the sticks and the mental effort required to form the shapes may help children learn the words.
2. Coloured chalk out in the school yard.
Learning High Frequency words is a part of learning to spell. It is useful for those odd words that don’t follow the rules.
