I’m always looking for new and fun ways to help my kindergartner learn and remember his sight words. Part of learning whole language is that it takes repetition. I find that the more I can get his hands on, the more it sticks. This was a really fun way to do it. You could also use Wikki stix, which is a similar product. Bendaroos are basically wax covered yarn/thread. They are easy to manipulate and come in an array of colors.
The bendaroos come with project cards for inspiration. We first took the back of a project card and used a dry erase maker to write the sight word on it.
It took some time to work it out. I had to do most of the cutting.
Here’s a picture of the finished project. Today we were learning sight words are, be, me, and my.
After we finished our sight words, we flipped the project cards over and did a few. This was a lot of fun. We were able to peel the projects off the cards and squish them on to paper. This way, it can go into a notebook for keeps.
Hope you enjoyed our idea for building sight words with bendaroos! Kindergarten is so much fun, and we’re glad we could share it with you.
