Sight Word Puzzle Game

By this time in the school year, my little learners were able to spell and write their own names pretty well. So, we would begin working on sight words. One of my favorite ways to engage my little ones with sight words was to create simple popsicle stick puzzles. Sight words practice is important for young children to learn common words that they should recognize easily. By turning memorization into a game, you can engage your children or students in ways that are both fun and rewarding.

I always loved this activity. It’s a fun little project is also great for developing fine motor skills. And, it can be used for quiet play, reading practice, or reading rewards!

Begin by placing three to four popsicle sticks together. You can tape them together if you need to for the next step.     

Next, write sight words on the popsicle sticks.  

Then, you can glue a small image onto the sticks. After the glue dries, remove the tape, and carefully slice the image between the popsicle sticks.

I stored each puzzle in a small ziploc baggie. And, then I put the bags in a small plastic shoe box for storage.
