How To Use The Tooth Sight Word Activity:

For this word activity, your kids will select a toothpaste card. They will then read the word on it as they put it in the tooth.

Word Work Activity

If your children have just begun learning sight words, start with just four or five cards. After they learn those words, you can add a few more.

You can continue adding more every time your kindergarteners play until they have learned the whole set.

This will help your kids gain confidence in their reading ability without getting overwhelmed.  

If you have students who know all the sight words, you can challenge them to use the words in sentences or put them in the tooth in alphabetical order. 

This Tooth Sight Word Activity is a fun word work resource for you to add to your lesson plans for National Children’s Dental Health Month.
