Christmas Sight Words
Sight words are the most common words in the English language.
They make up about 50% of all printed text, so it’s important to help kids learn them as soon as possible.
There are a few ways that parents can help their children with sight words.
One way is to read aloud to them every day and point out the sight words on each page.
Another way is to have your child read aloud from a book and then help them sound out any word that they don’t know.
A great way to learn sight words is to have them read and play game just like in this super fun Halloween themed printable game!

How to teach sight words in a fun way
It is not easy to teach sight words because they are difficult to remember.
However, there are some activities that can help children learn them more easily.
One of the ways is to use flashcards. Children need to look at the word on one side of the card and then cover it with another card with a different word on the other side.
When they uncover it, they will see if it was correct or not.
Another way is by using mazes or puzzles that have letters instead of words, so children can learn how each letter sounds and what letter makes what sound in different combinations, and then start associating those sounds with their corresponding letters.
Another way is to use crafts like this elf sight word craft here.
