Easter is coming next month, hence it’s perfect time to play this FREE Printable “Feed The Bunny Sight Word Game”
But it doesn’t necessarily need to be Easter for some bunny fun, right?
Forget the flash cards and the drill on the worksheets. Let’s head on to hunt the carrot and Feed The Bunny to learn sight words.
But first, if you ever wondered why the hassle for the kids to recognize sight word, let me share with you one of the whys.
Why Sight Word
Sight Word is a high frequency word that is used often in reading. They are called sight word so that our child can recognize it at first sight.
But to be honest, it doesn’t happen that way with Miss 5. She didn’t recognize the sight word at first sight, let alone able to call it.
So I created this game.

For me, playing Feed The Bunny Sight Word Game helps Miss 5 to recognize the sight word, because well, kids learn better through play.
And when she recognize some of the most frequent sight word, she is more motivated to do the reading on her own.
When you can decode new language, you too would be motivated to try to read more, right?
