Fish & Seaweed Sight Word Activity:

Did you know that there are two different types of sight words that your children should learn? The first set of words are those don’t follow the phonics “rules” so kids need to memorize them.


There are also high-frequency words that are commonly used in writing. It is easier for kids to remember them, so they can build fluency and don’t have to sound them out every time they are reading.


Using engaging, hands-on activities is a fun way for your children to learn these challenging and common words.

I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.


Next, laminate the seaweed cards so your kids can use them over and over. Then, cut the fish and seaweed cards out. Finally, tape or glue the fish on a paper bag or cardboard box and cut out the mouth.

If your kids are just starting to learn these words, only give them about five cards to begin with and then add a couple of words at a time.


For children who know most of these sight words, challenge them to use the word in a sentence. It’s easy to differentiate this activity for your kids!
