Put a creative twist on sight words with this interactive digital art project for kids.
Our children are digital natives meaning they don’t know the world without technology. This activity is a hands-on way to introduce word processing skills while reinforcing sight words.
Materials: Computer, Word Processor Software, Printer (optional). Paper, Selected Crayons (only select the colors that you wish to use the sight word)
Step 1: This step is optional but recommended if you are working with a young preschooler. On paper, draw a picture using the selected colors of crayons.
Step 2: Introduce your choice of word processing software. We used Apple’s Pages, but Microsoft Word, or your favorite word processor will work too.
Basic Skills to Introduce:
How to Type a Word
How to Change the Text Color
How to Move a Text Box
How to Copy and Paste a Text Box
How to Rotate a Text Box
Increase the Font Size
Change the Font
Step 3: Type out each color sight word into a new text box. Now challenge your child to recreate their picture using the color sight words.
