Kids are naturally curious and fascinated by creepy, crawly bugs! They are so tiny, but usually come in a long line, have so many legs, can fly, and some even sting.  Bugs are a fun spring, summer, or fall theme for young learners. We used this activity as as supplement to our I is for Insect week; bugs theme.  To expand on this natural interest, I made a fun, free bug printables to help students work on reading sight words. These insect printables include ants, ladybugs, flies, bees, and other insects with sight words on their backs. This sight words game helps preschoolers, kindergarteners, grade 1,  grade 2, and grade 3 students practice sight words. It is low prep and easy to play.
