Based on the 200 most frequently used words in texts, this game will allow your students to learn, practice and become fluent in reading sight words at their own level and pace.
A great game to correspond with the MIOOW Magic Words Program designed and developed by Marcella Reiter. Words include Golden to lemon list words.
How to play the game:
Students pull a star out from a magician bag. The student is to read the sight word on the card. If the student reads the sight word correctly they get to keep the star, however if the student reads it incorrectly they must put the card back into the magician bag.
If a student pulls out a card that says “SHAZAM” the student has to put all of their cards back into the bag. The winner is the student with the greatest amount of cards left when the game is stopped.
This is a great and fun activity and what makes it great is that it is so easy for the educator to modify according to student need. Just exclude or include words of different levels/colours to suit the needs of your students. The words are great for student from Kindergarten up to Year 2.
Hope your students enjoy "SHAZAM!" as much as mine do!
