Sight Word Mat Freebie

I have a free printable sight word mat for you today that I came up with while working on spelling words with my sidekick.

I kept it very simple so that you can use it in different ways. I would suggest laminating it, or putting it into a page protector, so that you don’t have to keep printing it. Here’s what we did with it:

I wrote a word onto the “read it” line in wipe-off marker, and had him read it to me.

On “Write it!” I first did a dashed outline for the word for him to trace

Then I erased it and had him write it on his own.

For the “Make It!” section, you could use fridge magnet letters, playdough, twigs, pipe cleaners, or any other hands-on substance that suits your fancy. Change it every time so that it stays fun!

I hope you enjoy this one. It’s been good for a lot of practice at our house! You can download the free printable sight word mat here. And remember that you can use it for learning a single letter or number too if your children are younger than mine.

    I love this idea and have pinned to my Learn to Play and Play to Learn board on Pinterest for when my son gets a bit older 🙂
