Sight words are not difficult to teach if done right. You just need the right resources. There are some must-have resources to teach at home in combination with games and reading.
How to go about teaching sight words
Kids learn best thru play! While they have fun playing a game they are really learning. So I have found that the best strategy is using a combination of games, flash cards, writing and more.
Start With Reading
Start by reading fun books and focusing on sight words. Choose easy readers books that your kids enjoy. As you are reading, make sure to point out and spell those words for them. Check out some other good easy readers here.
Follow up with a fun sight words game. It will help reinforce the words you have just read. Plus if they like competition they will try to win.
