I have done some simple review of Sight Words before with big brother. I introduced him to sight words 2 summers ago to help him get used to the idea of them. However, this year he has to learn a few each week at school. I am brainstorming new ideas to help him learn them each week. He is a hands on learner like I am so I am being challenged to find ways to help him learn his list each week. Simply sitting down with him and going over an index card is not working for him. He got really excited for this Invisible Sight Word Watercolor Painting. This may be one sight word learning activity we try again.

We first tried goop in 2012 and the kids loved it. See it here How to Make Goop. Ever since, we have only played with "goop" a few more times. Our sweet potato ooey gooey fall table was fun last year. I even got in on playing in that one, lol. With Halloween coming up I set out to come up with a few sensory play ideas I knew my kids would enjoy. This Halloween, Frozen Goop was a big hit with the kids!
We love to color at my house. Easy to set up and fun for the kids and parents too. Often I get the kids to color when I need to get things done around the house but, occasionally I will sit down and enjoy coloring with them.
While on PicMonkey the other day I decided to make them some Fun Face Coloring Pages. Not only would it be fun to color but a great way to go over facial expressions too.
