When kids start learning their sight words, it becomes essential that they learn to identify their sight words in different contexts. This activity is a great way to review sight words. The kids will love cutting and pasting their words onto the correct trees.

Sight Word Font Discrimination
As children learn to segment and read their sight words, it becomes even more important to expose them to different kinds of typefaces that the words may be written in. Kids are often also learning to blend sounds so this is a great way to have them read each word as they cut and paste it. They can then readily identify sight words in many other various formats.
This activity is simple to prepare and use.
I even got my ESL kids to work on these even though they found them quite tricky, especially the word ‘blue’ and ‘blui’. It’s great practice!
