Yes, I Can!

Mister and Ladybug are working their way through the pre prime sight words and I put together a sight word and gross motor activity for us. 

I had Mister and Ladybug meet me on the floor and I showed them the words "I" and "can."  They knew the word I, and we sounded out can.  Ladybug realized that can was also in our new word family.  I put down each of the cards and we made sentences with each.  Together we read, "I can jump (run, play, go)."  Mister and Ladybug each had an opportunity to pick a card and make a sentence.

Then, we went into the kitchen and played the "Yes, I can!" game. 

We reviewed the sight words before we played our game.

Mister and Ladybug took turns picking a sight word card.

We read the sentence together pointing to each word.

Mister and Ladybug completed the sentence by doing the action.


  1. This is fabulous and a great stuck-in-the-house winter activity.

  2. And if anybody can tell you about being stuck in the house all winter...

    We played for over 30 minutes and it helped burn off so much energy. They were so focused after we played our game.
