Activities to Remember the Sight Words for the Preliminary Grade
Sight words are those words which are used most frequently in writing. These words have different pronunciation for various people. There are various sight word activities that help people to remember these words properly..
The students of the first grade and above normally start learning how to differentiate between the various words. Thus the matching games are very helpful in learning these words. Various games for the sight word activities are already there or can be easily created with the help of the card games based on the words one can learn depending upon his age. Old maid and memory are few such games. Many children who regularly play these games are well-acquainted with the format of these games and thus can easily learn more words by changing the target words every time. This is the best way to learn the differences n sounds between the words such as "was" and "saw," "come" and "came," and "went" and "want", some words which otherwise are quite confusing.
Board games are another part of the sight word activities and are extremely popular among the first graders. A large paper is used to make a format from start to end. There can be provisions of penalties for wrong words or jump ups for correcting few words consecutively by gaining a few places. The remaining of the places can be filled with as many words as one wants to. For the first grades, sight-word flash cards can also become exciting sight word activities. On the word go, the children will scream a new word for all to hear and run as quickly as possible to that word. This will also keep the children fit.
