Sight word video for kindergarten

The Best Sight Word Videos that will Engage Every Student

Videos are a truly engaging way to teach and reinforce skills that require a ton of repetition and practice to master. When I think lots of repetition: I think SIGHT WORDS. Can we ever have enough practice? I rounded up the best sight word videos so that you don’t have to!

Quickly recognizing and reading sight words and high frequency words is such an important skill for new readers. The most common 100 sight words make up 50% of any text! For our new readers, that percentage is much, much higher.

Teaching sight words and high frequency words can be challenging because it requires so much repetition. We practice and practice (and practice some more), and even then, some students still don’t quite grasp it.

Then one day, as if a switch has been turned on, they remember them! It’s kind of a magical process. 🦄

But I know it can be exhausting (and frustrating), too. These videos are meant to supplement other sight word instruction to add another layer to your instruction. No matter what list you use, there are videos here to help you out. 👏

Note: Did you know there is a difference between sight words and high frequency words? You can read more about that here!

Miss Molly’s Sight Word Videos Playlist

I think of Miss Molly as the queen of sight word videos. ? This playlist has SEVENTY ONE sight word songs! 😳🥳

Each one covers a different sight word. Each video says the word and spells it several times. It also puts the word into several sentences with visuals.

I especially love these videos because the music is very calming so it won’t hype kids up. 😅 Miss Molly is a go-to for me in my classroom!

Heidi Songs Sight Word Videos Playlist

Like Miss Molly, Heidi Songs has a ton of sight word videos. This playlist has 32 sight words songs that students enjoy to sing and dance along with.

The videos spell the word, say the word alone and in a sentence several times. There are fun actions that go along with the words and they are very catchy. (So catchy, you may find yourself lying awake at night with them running through your head. 🤪)

Meet the Sight Words

Preschool Prep Company has several sight word videos on YouTube that my students really enjoy. The one I have linked is a 30 minute video that I show in pieces as we learn new words in my classroom. It introduces and reinforces several of the most common sight words.

Each word has a short video that lasts about 45 seconds. The letters of the word make up part of the picture and are characters in the shorts story. While the word is said over and over again, it is never spelled out verbally or put into a sentence.

I build understanding by asking my students why the word is doing that action or in that place. In that way, this video is more of an interactive experience in my classroom.

For example, the word “play” is playing baseball. Students can make the connection between the word and what it is doing. I also ask them to look at the word and spell it.

The Sight Word Song

Harry Kindergarten’s sight word song is a favorite for many. The song is catchy, it spells the word and reads it.

This song covers many of the most common sight words so students get the repetition that will help them memorize the words. My kids love, love, love to sing along with this song.

New Sight Words with Jack Hartmann

This Jack Hartmann videos shows the letters, says them and then says the word. It pauses the second time through so that students have the chance to read the word on their own.

Kids love this silly video and it’s catchy tune. They will have the words in it memorized in no time!

Sight Word Rap with Jack Hartmann

This Jack Hartmann video is similar to the previous one but with a different tune and different words! He says the letters and then reads the words. It says the word several times as the word flashes on the screen giving great repetition.

If you students are like mine, they will think Jack Hartmann “rapping” is HILARIOUS and super silly. They’ll also pick it up really quick and rap it back and forth to each other. 😅

Kindergarten High Frequency Words

I think this video is a.dor.a.ble. It is a teacher made video with students reading a word and then saying it in a sentence. The words are on the screen as well so students can see them.

My students LOVE hearing other kids reading to them. The first time we watched this video, they were in awe. When I told them we could make a video just like it, they were super excited.

We made our own video in the spring once we had a good handle on many sight words. Each student chose a word and created a simple sentence for them. I typed each word and sentence on it’s own slide in a powerpoint.

If you want to make a video like this, it is really easy! All you have to do is create a powerpoint, video the powerpoint and let the students read the words.

This list of videos includes many of my student’s favorite videos as well as channels that have tons of videos for individual sight words. Did I include your favorite? Let me know below! 👇

Do you need hands on practice for your students, too? I know the lists of words and number that need to be memorized varies hugely from district to district and from state to state.

That’s why I created this super magical resource! These Editable Sight Word Printables can be customized to any list without any formatting or special fonts downloaded. All you do is type your words and 10 different activities are immediately generated! Like I said: magical! 🦄

Teaching sight words is a topic that comes up quite regularly in the Simply Kinder Teacher’s Facebook group. It doesn’t matter if you love ‘em or hate ‘em, we all end up teaching sight words.

As you know, sight words are a set of basic words that occur frequently in reading and writing.  Our students can sound out many of these words, but that really slows down the reading process. When students start recognizing sight words, fluency levels rise. This leads to an increased level of success in their reading and that motivates them to continue to read.

There is really only one way to learn those sight words and that is to practice them often. It really helps to provide a variety of sight word activities to keep things fresh and fun. That is why we have gone out of our way to create many different resources for you to use.

Check out our Ultimate List Of Sight Word Activities

One of the most popular tools mentioned by teachers in the Facebook group are sight word videos. Teachers report that using videos have really helped their students pick up the words.

Why Use Kindergarten Videos to Teach Sight Words?

There are several benefits that come from using videos in the kindergarten classroom.

Videos are easily accepted by students

Our students are pat of the online generation.  Many of them will enjoy screen time outside the classroom. This screen time is something they value, so they will probably view a video positively. That attitude really helps when it comes to learning!

Videos Engage learners

Anything on a screen immediately engages learners and grabs their attention. Too much isn’t a good idea, but a 4-minute video is the one thing that will engage your entire class instantly. It is a secret weapon, so use it well!

Videos make great brain breaks

Brain breaks are short formal rests from instruction. Many of the videos in our list  encourage the kids to move. A quick video helps students take a break, do something fun, and helps get them ready to refocus on the task at hand.

While there are good reasons to use videos, it must be emphasized that they are just one teaching tool. You should use Kindergarten videos as part of a comprehensive sight word strategy.

How to preserve these warm memories of the first reporting concerts, magical performances timed to coincide with various holidays, not only in the form of photographs and home videos? The answer is simple - slideshow for kindergarten.

Theatrical performances

Performances dedicated to various occasions (for example, March 8, February 23, etc.) are always accompanied by skits and spectacles in which your little heroes are directly involved, preparation for them takes place long before the event, and the child is looking forward to this phenomenon . The whole palette of emotions can be transferred to a slideshow for kindergartens, just by uploading the photos you like, it will be a surprise for the kids.

The main event of the year for any preschool child is a New Year's performance, the kids are waiting for this moment with impatience and excitement, because this is not only a fun pastime with a theatrical performance, but also gifts, a lot of emotions that parents really want to capture in the most beautiful format. A slide show for kindergartens will help make this desire a reality, without unnecessary hassle and worries. Just like all of our children's slideshows. nine0006

A colorful video with topics that you can choose yourself, an excellent solution to this issue. In addition, in slideshows for kindergartens, you can comment on events using text.

Graduation concert

The graduation concert at the end of the year, the transition to the senior group is not only an important step in the life of a baby, but also of mom and dad. This is not only participation in the performance, but also a significant date for both the crumbs and relatives. Many warm shots will be captured not only during the matinee, but also in the process of preparing for it and at the end. You can make beautiful presentations right at the end of the matinee, while professional photographers prepare material for a very long time.

A photo and video of the scene of a shooting in a kindergarten in the Ulyanovsk region has emerged. A KP-Ulyanovsk correspondent is working at the scene.

Brief chronology of the tragedy. The incident happened at 13:08. 26-year-old Rustam Akhtyamov came to the territory of the kindergarten "Ryabinka" with a gun. Having entered the building of a preschool institution through a side door, he shot at the teacher who was below - 52-year-old Elena Karpova. nine0006

A woman, having been wounded in the forearm, managed to shout for everyone to run to the second floor and lock themselves in the premises. But Rustam was already heading upstairs, where he opened fire on the children and another teacher, who tried to lock herself in with the children. The latter, as well as a five-year-old boy and a six-year-old girl, died. The shooter then committed suicide.

According to preliminary data, Rustam took the weapon from his friend Alexander Doronin, who was later found dead. Fellow villagers speak of Alexander as a very positive person - watch the video. Since 2013, he has been registered in a psycho-neurological dispensary. nine0006

- There was a panic button in the kindergarten. Under the contract, it is served by the National Guard. After 4 minutes, she was already at the scene of the crime. For anti-terrorist security, the garden has a fence, all the gates were closed. The offender jumped over the fence and entered the garden through the side door. The door was open, as the junior teacher was completing wet cleaning at that time. He took advantage of this, - says the head of the administration of the Veshkaimsky district Tatyana Stelmakh.

The cook called the police. After the shooting, the children were quickly evacuated and their parents called. Now psychologists work with families and help them. nine0006

It is known that the dead teacher is Mitrofanova Olga Vladimirovna, born in 1986. She managed to close the door, but as she stood on the threshold, the bullet hit her. The injury was incompatible with life.
