This game is like tic-tac-toe. It helps your child recognize sight words. Sight words are those that need to be recognized automatically by sight and generally can’t be sounded out. This activity was taken from Growing Book by Book.
Words are found every where we go. A great place for children to find words is at the grocery store. In this activity, Shopping for Words, children will look for words that start with each letter of the alphabet at the grocery store. Encourage your child to search for all types of words and not just the names of food items. When you leave the grocery store, your child can write a story using the words form the chart.
Columbus City Schools will be on Spring Break from April 14th-April 21st. Attached you will find K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade Choice Boards that students can complete while they are on Spring Break.
