Sight Word Games
Here are some fun sight word learning games for you to do with your child. These are words that are commonly found in reading and will strengthen your child’s reading fluency. At this time of the year these words are meant to be recognized by sight only . After we have built up a base of 50 sight words, we will begin the process of learning to spell them. Just make the words into flashcards and then you can start playing!Let the kids get creative making their word cards... (gel pens, glitter glue, markers, stamps, mini-stickers)! Enjoy!
Game 1-GO FISH
There are two sets of cards and all need to be cut out. Deal 5 cards to each player and turn the rest of the them upside down to form a pile in the center. Take turns asking
“do you have the word ____”. If yes, the card is given to the player, who makes a matched set and lays them down. If no, the player is told to “Go Fish”, or take a card from the pile. Play continues until all cards are gone. Winner has the most pairs.
Game Two - Memory Match
Game Three- Oh NO!
Game Four- Old Maid!
Game Five- Bingo
Here's a list of the sight words covered up to and including the first week of October!
