Dog sight word

To set up this cute Feed the Dog reading game, first assemble the paper cup “dog.”  I had a black paper cup and chose to make him a Dalmatian.  I cut ears and a white circle for a large spot from white paper.
Glue those pieces on, then add googly eyes. Next paint on a nose.
Using scissors, cut a slit under the nose and then cut out a small hole for the dog’s mouth. Finally, prep the “dog bones” by writing a letter or word on each wooden stick with a marker.

Sight word game

To play this game, have your child pick up a “bone” with a word on it.  Have your child read it, and if done correctly… Feed the Dog!

Another way to play would be to call out a word and have your child sort through the bones to find the correct one, and then… Feed the Dog!
