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.
Another one that he and I did for his homework was TicTacToe. We always did it with letter formation (you can download the letter template FREE, here), but this school year we will use sight words.
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.
Some of the games/activities included in this resource are editable. All the Word Lists that are in the pictures are all editable. You can type in your own words in the pre-set boxes.
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.
Oh, and Word Wall Spin! This one is free in the preview download, here!
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.
If you need editable sight word cards (like the white cards in the pictures), you can find those here. Below are other sets of Sight Word Cards (Dolch lists).
