Home Practice Ideas


Sight words are one of the essential skills that you can help with at home. Practicing with your child will make a big difference, but it should be an enjoyable experience. Try this:



  • Spell the words in the car.
  • Open up your pantry and have your learner check food boxes and packages for sight words.

Sight Word Tips---for Parents!

  • Practice in short sessions. Two 8 minute sessions will be more productive than one 16 minute session.
  • If the child becomes frustrated, change activities or take a break. If this doesn't help, send a note to the teacher asking for suggestions.
