This game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” covers the first 200 Fry Sight Words. The cards are grouped into 10 lists (20 cards per list). You can play the game by list, or mix and match the cards to meet your students’ needs. Each card tells what list the sight word comes from for easier organization and cleanup. This game works wonderfully as a partner activity, or literacy center or station. It works well as a tutoring or enrichment activity too!
I suggest printing the cards on cardstock and laminating for durability.
Included on pages 32-34 is a blank version of the game in case you want to write in
your own words.
Deal out all the cards into two piles face down (one pile for each player). Both players draw a card from their pile. Each player must read the sight word correctly. Once answers have been given, players lay their cards down to see who has won the round. Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock. If a WILD card is drawn, the player may choose rock, paper, or scissors for that round. If it is a tie, the players each put down one more card. Whoever wins this round (or the next round if it is another tie) gets to keep all the cards. Play continues until all the cards are gone. The player with the greater number of cards in his/her winnings pile at the end of the game is the overall winner.
