Bean Bag Toss Sight Word Game

All you need to help prevent the summer slide is one great item: an alphabet mat! Today we pulled it out along with a few bean bags to do a quick review of Travis’s kindergarten sight words, because first grade is quickly sneaking up on us!

His class had a sight word song to the tune of Bingo, so we started with that. “There is a sight word of the day; the sight word is ‘my’. M, Y, My…” and so on.

As he sang through each word, Travis’s task was to toss a bean bag onto each letter, and then remove it from the mat.

To make things tricky, I didn’t arrange the letters in alphabetical order. He really had to seek them out!

Then, he arranged the letters off to the side to spell out each word.

Next up was L-I-K-E, like!

Travis tired out after a few words, but this was a fun way to do a sight word refresher, and we can work through his whole kindergarten list a few words at a time. You’ll notice little sister Veronika wanted in on the ABC mat action, too! Simplify this game for toddlers by tossing the bean bag on a letter and simply naming it.
