These Sight Word Games from SchoolSparks.com will help your child recognize common sight words without it being a tedious task for either of you.
Have a younger child, too? Print 2 copies & put one in a file for making copies later. I have a few files that I use for different subjects to save myself from hunting down that where a great worksheet came from or for a refresher later on. Tip: If a worksheet doesn't print the website's address, make sure to hand-write it on for later reference.
