Teaching Xander to read vocabulary words was super fun and easy (mostly through Little Reader). Sight words are much less fun. I still flash them to him through Little Reader, but it is hard to reinforce them with no pictures/tangible items. For a fun twist, I decided to play a sight words balloon popping game.
I started with a bunch of water balloons and a push pin.
Xander got to pick a balloon and read me the word. If he read it correctly, he got to poke it with the pin.
His reactions were priceless!
The game was a great success! He immediately asked to play again! How do you reinforced sight words with your kids?
