Musical Sight Words Game: Move, Groove and Read!

If your kids like to dance, hop, skip, crawl, move and play then this reading/sight word game is for them!

Both of the Lil Divas are doing great with reading - I am a proud mama. Most of our at home reading time is now focused on comprehension, fluency and enjoying books together but I still like to play games that review sight words, tricky words or phonics to keep them fresh. 

As part of my Learning Through Movement series with Train Up a Child and Mess for Less I wanted to share one of the Littlest Divas favorite games - Musical Sight Words.

To play, I write target words on index cards and arrange them in a big circle on the floor. This game can easily be adjusted to review letters, numbers, colors, math facts and more. 

I turn on the music and the Lil Divas dance around the circle. When the music stops, they must read the word closest to them.

The reason this is one of the Littlest Divas favorite games is because we change our movements up for each new round. I like to make our games silly, fun and engaging so that the Lil Divas want to play (and learn!).

We use movements like hopping on one foot, skipping, walking backwards, leaping like a frog, crawling like a baby, tip toeing, twirling, slow motion, marching, space walking and so on. Get as creative as you want - the sillier, the better.

The more kids move and laugh - the more memorable the game (and the learning) will be. This is why I am a huge fan of learning through movement and play. For more Learning Through Movement ideas for reading be sure to check out Mess for Less and Train Up a Child's posts as part of our series.

I have lots of Sight Word Activities on the blog and an awesome Sight Word Pinterest Board where I share even more fun ideas from around the web.

Have fun Moving, Groovin' and Reading!
