Activity for ages 4 to 8.
Since sight words are the most common words written, memorizing them helps kids increase their reading fluency in a jiffy. That’s why we love coming up with fun sight word games for kids! Whether you’re on the hunt for a playful Valentine’s Day literacy center, word work center or sight word game, this playful sight word craftivity is sure to be a hit.
Since I wanted Big Brother (age 6) to practice 20 words from his sight word list, I printed both sides of the printable front to back.
Then I grabbed a white crayon and a marker. Any color marker will work but I picked red this time around to step up the Valentine’s Day factor.
Magic Heart Words
Completing the activity was as quick and simple as they come. Big Brother wrote his sight words in white crayon – giggling along the way because he thought it was SO funny that he couldn’t actually see them!
Then he used the marker to color each heart. As he filled the hearts with red, he was thrilled to watch the color roll away from the waxy white crayon lines he’d written earlier, magically exposing his sight words.
