Here is another idea for St.Patrick’s day. We matched sight words in a paper Leprechaun craft. Though we have used the craft idea for sight words matching, it can be used for any learning activities like alphabet matching, math problems etc. Or, the idea can be used just to make Leprechaun’s face without sneaking in any learning activity.
- Construction paper
- Googly eyes
- I cut an “U” shape from a tan colored construction paper for Leprechaun’s face, a green cap, a black strip for belt and yellow square for buckle.
- My preschooler tore the orange paper. Tearing paper is good for fine motor skills.
- I wrote the sight words in the ripped papers and the same words in Leprechaun’s face.
- My daughter pasted the yellow square in the black strip. She pasted the black strip on the hat and glued the hat to the face.
- Once the basic set up is completed, she moved on to the beard to match the sight words.
- She read the word in the ripped paper, found the matching word in the face and glued the paper on the face.
- She repeated step four for all the ripped paper. Glued the googly eyes.
Leprechaun craft is done! It is a very simple activity. But my preschooler thoroughly enjoyed! She was very proud of her craft and was showing everyone in the home.
So, how did you teach sight words to your kids?
