The roads came from Making Learning Fun

Christmas Tree Sight Word Practice

I found this idea at Making Learning

Print the tree tops on green construction paper. Cut them out, including along the
dotted lines. Print the trunks on brown construction paper and cut them out.
Laminate all pieces. Have the children pick a tree trunk.
Then have them find the pieces to make the tree top.

Pattern Blocks

So, to make it just get some pattern block picture templates (I got mine from PreKinders). Then, write the sight words you want the kiddos to practice on each shape blank.

To play, pick a pattern board and grab a tub of pattern blocks. To cover a space, a child has to say the word on the space AND use it in a sentence correctly. If they can do those two things, they can cover the space. You can play it as a game, each child with their own board, and see you can fill the board first.

Sight Word Shape Writing

Have your child write all of their sight words inside of a shape. Use a pumpkin in the fall, a tree near Christmas, and a snowflake for the winter.
