Listen to the story, “Up in the garden, and down in the dirt” by Kate Messner. What are some animals that are found in the garden? Any bugs? What happens in the dirt?
Go outside, find a space with dirt. Find a stick to use as your pencil. Use this sight word list and practice writing the words in the dirt. After you write it, say it, and spell it out loud! Have fun!
Have an adult write the sightwords in the ground for you then, you point to the word and say the word and letters aloud.
