Looking for a fun new way to learn sight words? I put together a sight word sensory bottle to do just that!
Savanna strongly dislikes worksheets. She’ll do one or two of them and then she’ll want to stop. She prefers hands on activities and they do keep her involved for much longer.
DIY Sight Word Sensory Bottle
- Bottle (I used a Voss water bottle)
I added everything a little at a time to make sure that everything was nicely spread out and the words didn’t get stuck together. I added ten sight words – five are review from last week and five are new sight words for this week. I did not glue the top on because I plan to empty and refill each week changing out the sight words included in the bottle.
- Call out a word for your child to find. Let them turn the bottle around until they find the word and continue until everything has been found.
- Have your child turn the bottle around and call out any words that they see.
- Make it a scavenger hunt! Write down the words that are included in your sensory bottle. Have your child find the word and then mark it off on the paper. Continue until all words are found.
