My little cherubs were out for the afternoon and I decided to set up a surprise for them – Sight Word Tic-Tac-Toe! I moved the car out of the driveway and went to work.
I made tic-tac-toe boards and wrote two sight words beside or above each board. One sight word would represent the X and the other sight word would be the O. They picked a sight word to play with, having to read them both.
This was a fun way to spruce up our summer afternoon. I was worried they wouldn’t want to play it. When your mom is constantly making everything educational, it gets super boring. However, they really enjoyed it and wanted to play. I even put some homophone sight word pairs in there. We briefly went over the meaning of each homophone pair, keeping it short and sweet.
This was a quick fun way to have fun outside, practice reading and sight words, and a little tic-tac-toe strategy. It drives me nuts that they don’t try to block me or each other!
Happy Summer Chalking!
