Since my youngest daughter is heading into first grade in the fall, we’ve been focusing a lot on sight words.
She’s got a great handle on some, but as you know, there are many to learn.
We’re trying to keep up the practice over the summer, but I definitely want to keep things simple.
That’s where Sight Word Tallies comes in. It’s easy to prep. Simple to do. And, it’s fun.
I started by making a list of sight words that my daughter needs to learn. I chose only six. I didn’t want her to be overwhelmed by too many.
I made it into a pretty chart so it would look good in the pictures for you (plus, I like making things pretty). But, this is not at all necessary. Grab some paper and jot down a few sight words.
All you need to worry about is to leave room for your child to write their tally marks.
