We have some letter beads at home. Today I asked the girls to spell out their sight words using the letter beads. I placed the flashcards on the table and they got to work. Only problem is that the beads are all capital letters while the sight words are all lowercase. It caused a few problems but works well for the most part.
Once the sight word was spelled. I strung the beads on some elastic thread. I tied a bead to each end (I found this was the easiest way to secure them)
Now we can use our beads to practice our sight words! I like how the girls can see each individual letter for each word. I left a little space on the elastic thread so we can slide the letters as we spell out the word.
