In order for students to learn to read the most missed sight words in a fun way, I created the game Racing Turtles.

Over the past 5 years [2014 – 2019], I have administered a sight word reading assessment 100 times to a total of 42 students. Once this project was complete, I analyzed the data and found these 50 words to be the most missed sights words that students incorrectly read.

The way I figured the data was if a word was missed 11 or more times, then it made this list.From there I ended up with 50 words. Some words were missed up to 36 times such as, white and want. The purpose in doing this project was to help me to know which sight words to focus on the most when I teach. I teach special education students, and it takes my students being exposed to a word 20-35 times before they can actually read a word with automaticity –thereby owning the word for themselves.

Knowing the game is created from data helps you to know as a teacher that you are using quality words and the student’s quality time to insure learning. This makes you feel successful as a teacher. The game is fun and easy, and students love playing it, and it is a great game to place in a literacy station!
