How to use

Farm animal sight words

  • Match animal picture to correct word

  • Read the word with your child once he matches it correctly

Learn to read series

  • Read the books in sequence

  • Have your child build a good habit to point to the word as he reads

  • Verbally prompt your child how to read the target sight word on the first 3 to 4 pages. On the next page, pause and allow your child to read the target word on his own.

  • If he is able to read the target word, great! Allow him to read independently for the rest of the book.

  • If he still struggles, it’s ok! Continue prompting a few more times, and pause and allow for him to read on his own again.

Teaching tips

  • Practice makes perfect! It is ok to have your child read the same book over and over again. Repetition helps with learning!

  • Once he has learnt to read a word, practice reading the same target words in different books, texts, worksheets, etc.

Embed more learning opportunities

  • Pretend play: Use animal toy figurines and a farm scene (from our previous printable) and get him to act out the animals or match the animals as you read the books
