Starting Sight Words in Kindergarten

Although Sonlight doesn’t include sight word work in its kindergarten curriculum, kindergarten is a GREAT time for your kids to start learning sight words.

Our sight word series is FUN! We have a craft, or other hands-on work for each word we cover. We also use a “cumulative” approach–your kids will not struggle reading the words associated with each sight word. We use simple words that they can sound out; and teach high frequency nouns that they will learn simply from “seeing” the word with a picture.

Are you ready to dive in?! Your students will be so proud of all they will be able to read! You can begin here:

Or, if you just want the Context and Crafts:

Both resources are on sale Friday and Saturday!!

Humility Word Art

I was looking for a way to capture humility for my son’s scripture lesson (Philippians 2:5-11) and found C.S. Lewis’ quote. I thought I’d share this word art I made of it–with a Melonheadz key and arrow, plus a few fonts (Cartwheel, Fishfingers, Thirsty Script, and Honey Script). We’re walking this path together… Share Continue Reading
