Fizzy Sight Words

My kids currently in the 'in between' phase of being thorough with his ABCs, and word formation i.e. M-A-T is Mat. While we are busy practising rhyming words and syllable counting, I thought why not introduce some sight words! I taught him 4 over a month, and he could not have been more excited!

I've just started using a craft stick as a pointer when we read, as he loo..oves being part of the narration. The 4 words The, And, A and To, are generously sprinkled in every page of every book. So I restrict pointing to just 1 or 2 books a day! 

We combined sight words with fizzy science on a saturday morning. Placed a few of his playdoh cutters to arrange them into sight words over a tray. He put some baking soda inside each alphabet. Then he mixed paint (Orange was his color of the day!) with vinegar in his beaker and poured the mix into a spraying bottle.

Then he sprayed vinegar over the baking soda and watched it fizz! 

and then some shapes too!

Btw! our pre-writing practice is paying off and he wrote "THE" all by himself!

  3. I hadn't thought about showing the little ones how to fizz baking soda and vinegar. :) They'll like that. Four sight words over a month are good for a little one.

    I'm visiting from Turn It Up Tuesday. :D
