But what are Sight Words? And why might Uncle Goose Sight Words Blocks be popular for youth reading lessons right now?
Sight words are common English words that show up often in written work. And many times, these words are difficult for young learners to spell or sound out. Children need to learn to recognize these words “by sight.”
Think of words like what, who, his, how, you, I, our, and they. Or father, mother, brother, and sister.
These are common words. You learn to read them by repeatedly looking at them, rather than by sounding them out.
Uncle Goose Sight Words Blocks are fun because they provide a catalyst for social interaction. Unlike words written on a page, players and learners can manipulate the blocks to form sentences and phrases. It’s interactive and exciting for young learners to move words into sentences.
Even adults like putting words together to form fun phrases. They enjoy working with their children to see them read and string the words together. Sight Words Blocks can make learning a fun and playful experience.
And when adults are called away, children enjoy stacking and sorting the blocks. Building structures and sentences is an act of creation that brings joy and meaning.
