Kindergarten Sight Word Challenge

To help promote literacy throughout Kindergarten, Mr. Shivers has created this challenge. Individually, students are asked to practice their sight words throughout the school year. But at the end of the school year, we will total all of them up for the entire grade level. If we equal or surpass 5000 sight words, students will receive a special assembly in May.  

To help practice, please use the links below. Each set has 6 words and we recommend students play the matching game. Thank you for your continued support.
