Make sight words fun! This activity has several benefits. “These sensory writing trays have become a favorite way to invite learning at various stages of literacy development, from the simplest beginnings of mark-making and holding a writing or drawing tool, to copying patterns, letters of the alphabet, name writing and eventually onto practicing sight words too.”
Using a heart-shaped baking tin, color a thin layer of salt using food coloring. Gather several sight words, letters or shapes that can be made in the salt. For this project, use construction paper to create hearts to draw or write shapes and words. You can find several other shapes to use in our resource room! Have children use fingers, pencils, paint brushes, crayons and any other tools to work on shapes, letters, sight words and more!
