Summer is here and your kids probably want to be outside playing in the water. But keeping the skills they learned during the school year fresh is important for retention. Your little ones worked hard to learn lots of new words on their reading journey, and a little summer practice will keep those words fresh in their memory. So turn that outdoor water play into learning time with these four fun activities.
Sight Word Activities
For each activity, you can customize the words that your child will practice. Use words that you know your child needs to practice, lists that have been sent home from school, or from a Dolch word list.
You can also easily adapt the activity for younger or older children. Little ones can practice letters of the alphabet and older children can practice vocabulary words in place of the sight words.
