Santa is Stuck!
A Christmas Sight Word Game
This is a fun game to help children learn sight words. There are 121 words plus the number words zero through ten, and 10 color words.
The children will 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.
Santa is stuck! Lose 2 cards. Bad Luck!
Fog! Oh, No! All your cards have got to go!
Oh, No! Empty Sack! Give 4 cards back.
Rudolph to save the day! Take a card from all. Hooray!
Ho! Ho! Ho! What a snack! Take 3 cards from the stack!
The child with the most words after all 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.
