To prep this activity, I printed the snowflake sight words on cardstock to make them extra sturdy. (You can laminate them to make them even more durable and use for year after year).
I used my scissors to cut out each snowflake and printed a worksheet for follow up.
Then I filled an empty baking pan with a thin layer of salt to make it look like pretend snow. (Shaving cream would be a great alternative if you do not have salt!)
That’s all it is! We were ready to play.
Snowflake Sight Words
I placed the snowflakes upside down in a pile and called my son over to join me. He picked up the top snowflake in the stack and I helped him read it out loud.
“Be,” he repeated after me. “B-E.” My son used his pointer finger to write the word in our pretend snow and read “be” again.
When he was finished, he picked up the next card. He repeated the next word after me, “On. O-N” and then wrote it in the snow.
Big Brother continued reading, spelling, and writing the words until he had practiced them all.
Sight Words Extension Activity
Although he wasn’t ready for the extra challenge yet, I included a follow-up worksheet older kids can use to get even more practice.
