Learning Through Play: Sight Word Twister

Pin It
One of the best ways to teach a child something (anything!)
is to make it memorable
I firmly believe that FUN = Memorable for kids. 
That's why I am always coming up with different ways to make learning 
those basics, like ABC's, Colors & Sight Words, that can get boring - FUN!

So, armed with a few index cards, some tape and a sharpie 
I turned Twister into a fun learning game for the Lil Divas. 
There were tons of giggles, a few falls, many body part tangles, 
countless laughs and lots and lots of learning.

Sight Word Twister


What You Need:
Twister Game 
index cards
marker
tape

or you can create your own game -
outside with some chalk 
inside on a large sheet of paper or blanket

What To Do:
1. Fill each circle with a target sight word, letter of the alphabet, number, etc... (so many fun possibilities for this!)

2. Play, Laugh & Learn!




The Road to Reading can be FUN!

  17. I found this and decided I had to make one. I made one small change I took Basball Trading Card plastic sleeves and ran them through my Xyron Sticker maker and put one on each circle, so that I can put the word cards in the sleeves so the cards do not get all bent up from play.

    1. You would put sight words on the circles. The person with the board would spin it and read what it lands on. For example, if the black arrow landed on Right Foot Red, you would say Right Foot "and" or whatever the sight word was.
