This is a fun game designed to reinforce sight word recognition and identification. All 220 Dolch words are included, divided by grade level. Select which word cards you wish to use and photocopy them onto cardstock and laminate for durability. You can focus on a single grade list or mix and match to suit your needs. Blank cards are included so that you may add your own items. You will also need to select and prepare the two pages of “special” cards of the Month:
March = shamrocks and leprechauns
April = Easter eggs and bunnies
May = insects and leaves
One at a time, invite the children to come up and choose a Dolch card to read. If s/he is correct, the card is removed to reveal what is behind. If there is a “special” card, either a treat is provided or an action is performed.
The Dolch card is then returned to its place in the pocket chart. For children new to this game, you may wish to turn the card backward so that it is not selected again. Keep the card facing forward for a more difficult challenge. In subsequent plays of the game, less "special" cards are used to increase the difficulty/suspense factor.
