Summer Sight Word Game Game Directions
To create, first gather some sea shells from the beach or even at your local craft store Or grab some Sea Shells on Amazon. You will need at least 26 shells for each letter. Now it’s time to research the words our child should be working on.
Use the words that your child should be working on and write them down on a sheet of paper with your child.
Here’s a blank circle template for printing. Then attach the circles to a few funs pieces of scrapbook paper to make it colorful.
Next take the seashells and add with your Sharpie Marker all of the letters of the alphabet onto each shell. Put the shells in a fun container. We added ours to some colorful cloud dough we created recently.
Sand would be fun too to use in the container.
For the Summer Sight Word activity encourage your child to spell on the sight words using the shells.
It’s time to search for the letters needed to create the site words on your game board. Create enough words so that you can switch the search around too!
