Letter L Sight and Spelling Word List - Kids Activities Blog

I have a couple of favorite sight word activities including sight word snacks – food and learning? Count us in! Sometimes I will combine games to keep them interesting and challenging while other times I may adjust them to be easier so that no one ends up discouraged. At the end of the day, I always come back to the core ideas behind teaching sight words.

 

SIGHT WORD LIST

As we worked to develop our list, Kindergarten Sight Words and 1st Grade Sight Words quickly became too numerous for one list. Dividing these into how to teach the letter makes it so that you can focus on your child’s understanding of each and every letter of the alphabet.

Not every word that starts with the letter L is easy to pronounce! There are so many that are hard to sound out. When this is an issue, we turn to using sight words! Every child learns using different sight word activities.

KINDERGARTEN SIGHT WORDS:

  • Leg
  • Let
  • Like
  • Live
  • Look

If you feel as though you are struggling to break through to your child’s understanding of the letter K sight words, do not give up. Time is your best friend. The more examples of each thing you give, the better your chances are of finding the one that sticks. 

1ST GRADE SIGHT WORDS:

  • Laugh
  • Letter
  • Light
  • Little
  • Long

How to teach sight words is in no way a science. There is a lot of guessing involved. For some kiddos, pictures help the most and for others it can be making rhyming games.
