Tried It Tuesday!

I'm linking up with our awesome friend, Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for her weekly linky party, Tried It Tuesday. This week I'm going to share something I tried with my four year old daughter, Makenzie. She really really loves it!


A few weeks ago I laying on the couch pinning away {I do that when I'm bored} when I came across this pin about sight word songs. I was pretty interested since Makenzie just started working on sight words in her pre-k class and at home for homework.  What I found were these pretty cool sight word videos on YouTube created by Have Fun Teaching. These videos teach the word by showing the word, repeating it, spelling it, using it in context, and then typing the word on a keyboard. I really like the repetition, and the tunes are pretty catchy too! There are only 18 sight word videos, but Have Fun Teaching also has letters and sound videos, counting songs, and other songs appropriate for kinders. These videos would be great for any beginning reader. Makenzie has about 10/18 words down and she's excited for more! Check it out!!

Make sure you link up with Fourth Grade Flipper and share something that you've tried!


  1. I think it's amazing what is in youtube and the things on there we can use to teach!

  2. Someone else blogged about "Have Fun Teaching" today too! They used it for a song about nouns. I have never heard of it before. This is great because it is FREE! My kids (my own) love the "Meet the Letters" and "Meet the Sight Words" videos. It is amazing what their little brains soak in. My just barely two year old son would watch them with his preK sister and one day he started saying the sight words too as they appeared on the screen! Amazing!! Thanks so much for linking up, friends:)

  4. I can't wait to use this with my son (Pre-K). He is becoming very interested in decoding words lately so this will help tremendously.
