I love celebrating Christmas in my Kindergarten classroom. We have so much fun decorating, celebrating, performing, and waiting that the suspense continues to build all through the month of December. Of course, we can’t forget about curriculum just because it is holiday season. Sight word mastery continues to be a significant focus of my instruction and my kinders have been the Christmas sight word books I created to help them learn their sight words in a hands-on way (and practice reading!)
Discover the Magic of Interactive Sight Word Readers
The practice begins with the cover page – the featured sight word is shows in big clear print for students to color.
For each page of the booklet, students will cut out and unscramble letters for the featured sight word (this book’s sight word is “Do”)
The next step is to glue the letters (this is a great opportunity for students to pay attention to the letters and make sure they are not upside down!)
All pages of the book contain a predictable sentence that is repeated throughout the reader.
(in this case: “Do you see___?”) The last page always has an extra challenge or fun twist in the words.
Stock Up on Christmas Sight Word Emergent Readers
I made several holiday-themed emergent readers that feature a variety of sight words so you can select the ones that fit your current instructional focus.
Interactive Sight Word Readers are the perfect sight word activity for the holiday season. And with a price tag of $1.25 each, these books fit into any teacher’s budget. Click any of the images below to grab them from the Kinder Craze shop or find them in my store on Teachers Pay Teachers.
Free Nativity Theme Sight Word Reader
I taught in a Catholic school for 13 years and love serving teachers in Catholic and Christian schools, so I created a free religious Interactive Sight Word Reader called “Who Is With Baby Jesus?”
