Thanks for downloading this free 2nd grade sight word game! This game covers 32 of the 2nd grade sight words. It is best played in a group of 2-3.
To prepare this game, copy it on cardstock and/or laminate and cut apart. Each group will get a stack of cards.
Students will shuffle the cards and lay them out, facedown, on the table or ground in front of them. Students will then take turns to play. When it is a student’s turn, he/she will choose a card, and he/she will read the word aloud. That student will then continue to draw cards, reading each word, until he/she gets a pumpkin card. If a student picks a pumpkin card, he/she says, “PUMPKIN SMASH!”, and it is the end of his/her turn, and the next player will go. Play continues until all of the cards have been chosen. The person with the most cards is the winner!
Hope your students enjoy this game as much as mine do. ? This is a great game to use for word work during Daily 5 or guided reading, or students could practice it at home or play it together any other time.?
