To extend the activity, you can have children write down each sight word before feeding it to the dog. This will practice reading and writing at the same time. After all the bones have been fed, the child can then read their list of words for extra practice.

  3. Thank you for sharing this, but i dont have idea how it can be used and I would lve to use this, because materials are so good. Can you give me any advice please? It is like if a pupil speaks the word correctly, he can feed a dog? Thank you! And sorry for my English :) Petra.

  4. Directions for activity please?

    1. Thanks for reaching out. The child reads each sight word before "feeding" the bone to the dog. This way they are practicing reading sight words. You don't have to give them all the words/bones at once. Give them the words they have already learned or are currently learning. Enjoy!
