The extension activity I made was really easy. I collected tops of bottles and milk cartons and wrote the letters to spell out the sight words. I then wrote the word on snack size zip lock bags and put the matching tops inside. She uses the bag to see how the word is spelled and matches the letters to make the word.
The trick is to teach that you only work on one bag at a time. That way the tops don't get mixed up.
|This is another literacy activity that we do together. She picks the letter she wants to work on and we cut pictures and words out of magazines that start with that letter. We tape the letter pages to the closet doors in the family room.|
