Farm Activity for Kids


What Are Sight Words?

There are two different types of sight words. The first type of words are the ones that don’t follow the phonics “rules” so kids need to memorize them.


There are also words that are frequently used in writing so it is easier for children to remember them. That way, they can build fluency and don’t have to sound them out every time they are reading. 


Getting Ready To Use The Cow Sight Word Activity:

What’s Included:

  • Cow to Feed Picture
  • 40 Grass Sight Word Cards (Pre-Primer Dolch Sight Words)


What Else Is Needed:

  • White Card Stock or Copy Paper 
  • Scissors 
  • Paper Bag or Cardboard Box
  • Glue


High Frequency Words Activity


To get this word work activity ready for your kids, click on the button below and fill out the form. Next, download and print the cow and grass cards that you want to use.


Then, laminate the printables so your children can reuse this activity. After laminating, cut all the pieces out.


Finally, tape or glue the cow on a paper bag or cardboard box and cut out the mouth. 


How To Use The Cow Sight Word Activity:

For this sight word activity, your kids will select a grass card. They will then read the word as they feed it to the cow.


Word Work Activity


If your children are just begun learning sight words, give them about four or five cards to read. After they learn those words, you can give them four or five more.


You can continue giving them a few at a time until they have learned the whole set. This will help your children learn the words without getting overwhelmed and gain confidence.


Sight Word Game


If you have students who know all these sight words, you can challenge them to use the words in a sentence or put the words in alphabetical order. It’s easy to differentiate this activity for all your young learners!  


This free printable Cow Sight Words Activity is a “moo-rific” way for your preschoolers and kindergarteners to practice reading sight words.
