If you don't know already, I love to pin! At night when I can't sleep I will pin until I get sleepy.
I felt a little guilty pinning all these things for my Kindergartner but hadn't made him anything. I decided I was going to create something that he really is into lately, sight word game. There are plenty of wonderful ideas from Pinterest and are pinned and planned on creating them....but I used my own creativity to make this for my little guy. I was going to cut tag cards but then I noticed I found another set of playing cards of Disney Go Fish & Snap that came in a two pack at the Dollar Store. * I thought instead of going through the trouble of cutting the cards and then being super
anal annoyed with different sizes to my cards and/or them not being laminated (a teacher's friend- but once they are laminated then you have to cut them out which may never happen...I'm speaking the truth my fellow educators.)
So I went with the cards that were already colorful and all it needed was my handy Sharpie and mommy writing the words. Matthew's teacher sends home,on a binder clip, all the words they have studied, so I just used those words.
Only 3 easy steps to create these InSIGHTful Games:
I wrote all the words down onto card stock so that we can make variations to the game at a later time. I like using the cards because younger siblings, or children that aren't familiar with all the sight words could rely on the pictures to help with their game! :)
I matched up all the characters, which were 4 in each set.
I wrote the words twice on the matching card.
