Sight Words Games and Activities
Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and July 4th weekend. Our oldest, Sis, is leaving for church camp today. I’m going to be one sad Mama with my sidekick away for a few days. We’re looking forward to seeing the fireworks tonight. They’re so neat to watch! In other news, I updated a very old resource – sight word games! I shared some of these sight words games and activities on IG earlier this week. They’re 20% off through the 5th!
One of my very favorite activities is Ten Frame Words. This can be used as a station or independently using the recording sheet. Students can write their sight words (or spelling words) with a wipe off marker or build them with letter manipulatives. They count how many letters are in the word and complete the recording sheet. I absolutely love this because it incorporates number sense. Plus, this is great for visual learners!
This one is super simple but fun! Bubs and I played this a lot during his Kindergarten year for homework. I shared a less fancy version of it here – ha! It works just as well! Students simply flip a coin. If they land on heads, they read the word. If they land on tails, they write the word.
Roll a Color is another very simple (but fun) way to practice sight words (or spelling words). Students roll a die, move that many spaces, and write their word in the color they land on.
The fonts are pre-set as well!
For example, Spin and Write can be used as is (picture below) or you can edit the activities for each spin (see above picture).
Here’s a look at the other editable activities.
These large letter cards are perfect for a sight word (word work) station. Students can build words within words or individually.
I hope these are helpful for sight words (or even spelling word) practice in your classroom. I know that we will be using several of these this year for homework with Bubs.
