Sight words often have little meaning on their own, but they do contribute a great deal to the meaning of a sentence. Young learners must recognise these frequently encountered words without sounding out the letters to assist them in building speed and fluency when reading and writing. Retaining the information is often difficult for them, the key is to provide fun opportunities for repetition and reinforcement. With that in mind, we’ve gathered six super sight word activities for you to try with your class.
