Learning sight words is an important part of learning to read. Many times knowing these words give boys the confidence they need to feel that they can unlock the secret to reading.
We found some very cool sight word games for you and your boys to play together. They are all on topics that boys like and they are all a lot of fun as well.
Think about how excited your boy is going to be when he can recognize the words in these games and then sees them in a book and can read them. It is so rewarding for them.
You are going to love these both for sight words and because they make great activities for boys.
