Students will love moving their baby polar bears across the "sea ice" on this two page game board, reading words or letters to help the baby bears reach their mother. Bears on the Sea Ice Sight Word Game comes with 4 sets of game cards: lower case alphabet, preprimer, primer and 1st grade words. Each set is color coded, so you can easily distinguish them. There is also a recording sheet for students to list the words they successfully read as they play.

Use this game as a center, with a tutor, in your reading groups, or even use it with book buddies from a higher grade!

Here's what other educators are saying about this resource:

  • "I love that you made the cards multi-level. I bought the game with a kindergarten student in mind but I was also able to use it with second graders. (I am an Intervention Specialist). While I was at home last night cutting out the next level of sight word cards, my 4 year old son wanted to play it. He wanted to know if we could only play with 3 cards since he only knows 3 sight words. I printed off the alphabet cards to go with it instead and he played it 3 times. He loves it too!"
  • "Fun way to review/practice sight words!"
  • "Used with small groups last winter. Great way to reinforce sight word recognition."
