Puppy Sight Word Activity:

Learning sight words can be challenging and even frustrating for some children but using activities like this one can make learning fun. Your students can use this resource independently, with a partner, or in a small group during literacy centers or morning tub time. 


You can also turn this activity into a game for your whole class to play. First, hide the bones around your classroom. Then, have your students look for the bones. Or, you can say a sight word and have your students look for one word at a time. 


What Are Sight Words


What Are Sight Words?

There are two different types of sight words. First, there are words 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.

Sight Words for Kindergarten


To get this activity ready for your kids, click on the button below. Then, download and print the puppy and bone cards that you want to use. 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 printables so your children can use this activity over and over. Then, cut the puppy and bones out. Finally, tape or glue the puppy on a paper bag or cardboard box and cut out the mouth. 


How To Use The Puppy Sight Word Activity:

To begin using this sight word activity, your students will select a bone. As they feed it to the puppy, they will read the word.


If your kids are just starting to learn these words, only give them about five cards to begin with. After they learn those words, you can add a few more. This will help them not only learn the words but gain confidence too. 


Sight Word Game


For children who know most of these sight words, 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 Puppy Sight Words Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your kids to learn and practice reading sight words.
