Literacy Activities: Threading Sight Words - A fun way of revising the high frequency sight words - Threading onto pipe cleaners made the process of threading each letter much quicker and helped to keep the focus on the word and it’s combination of letter sounds - If you don’t have any letter beads, you can make your own. Give your threading beads (ours were chunky plastic beads) a letter to each bead with a permanent marker. You could also write the letter on a small dot sticker.
