My kindergarten, first and second grade students love this fast-paced sight-word game for the excitement factor. I love it for tracking their progress easily and keeping them just challenged enough to feel successful and motivated to play the game at home. Parents enjoy seeing their kids' sight-word vocabulary grow along with their enthusiasm for learning at home.

All it takes to egg them on is a few phrases:

"Now, there's no need to practice at home. The grown ups are supposed to win. I want to fill my dungeon next time"

Whether they have chosen a Superhero, Monster Truck, Fairytale Castle or Under the Sea envelope to carry their word cards (selected just for them), they head home to practice through play. In our classroom, we have smart phone boxes that match the themes of their envelopes, and the one that sits in front of the adult or reading buddy is the dungeon. After I shuffle, the cards land one at a time in one of two boxes. The deck comes from the student's envelope and is built up gradually, so usually only a newer card or two fall into darkness.

Grab a smart phone box, choose from thematic papers and challenge your students to save their sight words from your dungeon!
