Writing Tray

Then, put some sand in a plastic container. You can use pencil boxes if you want to make one for each of your students.

Or, you can use larger container if you just want to have one for your classroom.  

If you don’t have kinetic sand, you can fill the plastic container with many other things. You can use rice, oatmeal, noodles, or pudding to look like sand. 

How to Use the Beach High Frequency Word Activity:

For this word work activity, your kids will pick a card and read the word. They will then use a craft stick (or another object that can be used to write in sand) to write the sight word. 

Sensory Activity

Your young learners can also practice spelling their sight words in the sand using letter stamps or cookie cutters. 

Sight Word Writing Tray

If your children are just starting to learn their sight words, start with just four or five words.

Once they can read and write those words, you can add a few more each time they do this activity. 

After kids write a word, they can move the sand with the craft stick to erase it and then practice spelling and writing more.
