Sight Word Activites

Sight word practice is never ending. There are so many different Sight Word Activities to practice and students need that practice. Over. And over. And over. It is important for students to practice in all different ways. I've made it easy for you today by putting many of our sight word posts, all in one spot. Scroll down and find ones that interests you. There is a balance of printables and hands on ideas.
Love this list of sight word activities for teaching and practicing sight words. A good mix of printables and hands on activities. This is awesome for kindergarten, first grade and second grade.

Walkable Rosaries

Teaching students to pray the Rosary is vital to raising children in the Catholic faith. It isn't always easy for young children to memorize since it is lengthy.  I like using rosary lapbooks as a reference resource. I also like to get children up and moving with a walkable rosary.  This is perfect with nicer spring weather in the month of May, as we honor Mary. It can also be made on a shower curtain so it can be used inside all year long.  To learn more about how to make and use walkable rosaries, check out my post, Walkable Rosary Activity and Printable, on Today's Catholic Teacher website.
Help children learn to pray the Rosary in a fun and engaging way.   Walkable rosaries are a great way to get students up and moving whether inside or outside.

Pirate Counting I Spy

We've been having fun with all things pirates this week!  We read through a stack of Pirate Picture Books. Then we worked on some counting practice with X Marks the Spot Counting Puzzles. Next up was some Pirate Counting I Spy Cards. We grabbed the neighbor and some pirate costumes for fun and then practiced our counting skills.  
Pirate I Spy cards are fun counting practice for kids. I love that there is a free printable!

Pirate Themed Number Puzzles

We are all about pirates this week and have a fun X Marks the Spot -  Pirate Themed Number Puzzle FREEBIE for you today. After reading some of our favorite pirate books, it was time to practice writing and counting numbers up to 20. Of course, we had to do this with a pirate theme to make it even more fun. Pirates, treasure, ships, palm trees, parrots and more all made these puzzles more engaging.  
Free printable pirate counting puzzles make the perfect math center for number counting fun!

The Mass Box Review

This post may contain affiliate links for your shopping convenience. View our full disclosure policy HERE. Thank you to The Mass Box for sponsoring this post.  While I did receive compensation in exchange for a review, all opinions are my own and I only endorse products I love.


When I was first contacted to write a review for The Mass Box, I was SO excited. Just days before that I had learned about Hello Bible, which provides a monthly box with a Bible story and craft for kids. I loved the concept (monthly subscription) and then I heard about The Mass Box which is the same idea only the crafts and readings go along with the liturgical year so they are the readings the kids would be hearing at church. A Catholic subscription box that helps my kids to understand what they are hearing in Mass through a cute and quick craft, ummm yes please!  Sign us up.  My girls love crafts and I am always looking for ways to teach them about the faith that are at their level yet meaningful.

Catholic Mini Accordion Books

 After the popularity of my 12 Apostles Mini Book, I knew I wanted to create a whole series of mini books that teach young learners the Catholic faith. I quickly set to work but I didn't want you to have to wait until I was completely finished before you started using these, so I created a Catholic Mini Book Growing Bundle.  A growing bundle means that some of the items are finished but it will continue to grow as new products are added to it.  The best part is that you get the price that it is now but still get all of the other books as they are added with no additional cost.  The price goes up every time a new book is added.  This is such a fun, hands on way to bring the faith down to a simple level for children.  Plus, it gives children an awesome set of mini resources that they can refer back to often.
Catholic mini book bundle is the perfect printable activity for kids to teach them about the Catholic faith, the Bible, Jesus and more!
