A Sight Word Game
This is a fun game to help children learn sight words. It includes the Dolch Pre-Primer – 2nd grade word list. The number words 0 – 10 and 10 color words are also included.
The children take turns drawing cards. If they can read the word they keep it, if they can’t they discard it. If a special card is drawn, they do as it says.
Shamrock - Lucky you! Take 2! You can have the children take 2 cards from the deck or each child.
Pot of Gold - Gold! Oh my! Take a card from every guy! Children take a card from every child.
Leprechaun - You can’t catch me! Lose your cards! I’m still free!
Rainbow – No gold! No fun! Give a card to everyone!
The child with the most words after all cards are drawn is the winner.

I have also included a page of blank cards to add any words you may need.
I pick 10 to 12 words that my group needs help with to place in my game. I put 3 to 4 of each of these words in the game so they see them 3 to 4 times.
