I’ve been working with my daughter on reading and recognizing sight words. She gets easily frustrated so I’ve been struggling to find ways to keep her interested in practicing. With the weather being so nice and the kids wanting to be outside all the time I decided to try a simple game based off of hangman.
I started off with 3 and 4 letter words and she did great. I didn’t actually limit her guesses and just let her guess as many times as she needed and then she figured out the word I was thinking of.
Then she decided she wanted to think of a word and let me guess. I was impressed that she was actually able to think of a word, figure out how many letters were in it and then fill them in as I guessed.
Since she was enjoying the activity so much we also worked out some of the combination sounds we have been working on in our reading.
I would love to hear any other suggestions for making learning to recognize words fun.
