Rock, Paper, Scissors
A Sight Word Game
This is a great way to help the children learn sight words and they LOVE it! The game is for a group of 2, 4, or 6 children. It is based on the rock, paper, scissors hand game. It has 81 sight words that you can pick from to use in the game. I like to have 2 to 3 cards of each word and target about 10 – 15 words depending on the group of children I’m working with.
Sight Words: the, an, am, at, is, look, see, here, can, my, we, me, said, and, go, to, like, you, it, little, up, went, in, he, she, come, on, no, yes, this, big, are, not, down, for, goes, oh, ran, run, good, away, where, cried, eat, will, with, came, your, too, eat, of, back, day, after, stay, they, take, took, girl, boy, get, got, play, us, help, some, woke, wake, way, I’m, his, her, off, very, again, all, out, who, by, walk, ride
Place all the word cards in one pile. Place the rock, paper, scissors, and wild cards in another pile. Before starting, decide which 2 children will pair up to play rock, paper, scissors. The children will all draw a word card and read it. Then they will all draw from the rock, paper, scissor, wild card pile. The 2 children paired will show their card to each other to see who takes both cards. You can then have the 2 winning children draw again to see who gets all 4 cards. If the wild card is drawn, the child may choose rock, paper, or scissors before seeing the other child’s card. If there is a tie, both children draw another special card to determine who wins the pair of cards. Play continues until all cards are gone. The child with the most cards wins.
Rock beats scissors.
Paper beats rock.
Scissors beat paper.
