I have been hunting around for some hands-on ideas for my Prek and Kindergartners. I hit the jackpot this week when I found some great center ideas from Kindergarten Smiles. If you have a preschooler or a Kindergartner, you should check out her blog. She has great ideas and some great products. I really liked her ideas on working with sight words so I made up my own sight word cards to practice the words we have been working on all semester. (Downloads are found at the bottom of this post)
Learning With These Printables
After laminating the printables I cut them apart.
I reviewed the sight words with my Kindergarteners then spread out the cards for the students to complete.
I found out this was way too overwhelming for them. Instead I put them in a pile and they completed one at a time. This worked so much better.
My preschoolers are working on upper and lowercase letters. I made up a few letter cards for them to practice identifying the letters.
Beginning and Ending Sound Practice
In this free packet I also have a few cards to practice beginning and ending sounds. I use magnetic letters with these cards, however you could print out the page, slide it in a page protector, and have your child use a whiteboard marker to write the correct letter.
We haven’t worked much on spelling lately, so I thought this was an excellent way to sneak in some practice before Thanksgiving break. I used word families that we have worked on this year, so these words are review for us. We will use magnetic letters to spell these words, but again you can use page protectors and whiteboard markers if you prefer.
