Words and Movement

One of my little Buddies has been struggling immensely with reading basic words.  He still has a bit of difficulty with letter recognition, and finds memorizing and sounding out words very difficult.  He is a high-energy child who loves to move.  Trying to tap into his unique way of learning, we developed a game to learn sight words.  He and I orchestrated movements for sight word flash cards.  We began with just three, and have been adding flash cards with associated movements a little bit at a time.  He loves this activity – he asks to do it every day – and he now knows the sight words on these flash cards.
