This is a sight word game for 2-6 players (or more) using Fountas & Pinnell's First 25 Words. I have also included days of the week, months of the year, and colors.
To play, the first player draws a card and reads the word. If it is correct, then the card is kept. If it is incorrect, the card is put back. The envelope is then passed to the next player.
If a POP! Is drawn, all cards in that player’s pile must be put back. The game keeps going until all cards are gone. At the end, all players count their cards and the player with the most cards wins!
This game was designed to address CCSS RF.K.3c (Read common high-frequency words by sight).
If you purchase all four sets, you can easily differentiate your centers by readiness level, as the sets get progressively more difficult.

Be sure to check out the 4-game pack where this one is included!
Extra: I have my students "bubblegum" their sight words when I give them a paper take-home book, so they're even more excited to play the game! That was an idea from my mentor teacher. Thanks, KM!
