Included in this product are 11 different themed sight word activity packs that coordinate with different seasons and holidays throughout the year. Each activity pack includes 4 different sight word games that you can play- 44 games in all. These games feature words from the Dolch Pre-Primer, Primer, and First Grade lists. The cards have a different picture on each set of words for easy differentiation. You can use words from each list, mix all the words together for kids who are ready, or pick and choose words your students are working on.
These games are perfect for extra sight word practice in Guided Reading groups, as an intervention activity for struggling students, or as extra practice during literacy centers.
You can choose a different game for students to play each season to mix it up, or allow them to play the same game with a different theme throughout the year. The possibilities are endless! Your students will love them.
These games are available in both blackline and color so they are easy to print.
The 4 games included in each file are:
-Students choose cards from a basket. If they can read the word, they keep the card. If they can't, they put the card back. There are other cards included to keep the game interesting, including a "get one card from each player" and "put all your cards back" cards.
- Students choose pairs of cards and try to find the matching sight word. If they find a match, they keep the cards. Students play until all the cards have been matched. The student with the most cards wins! There are also instructions for a fun twist to the Concentration game included.
- The student asks for a card that matches one of their sight words. If the other student has the word, they give their card to the first student. If they do not, they tell the student "Go Fish!" (or some themed variation) and the student chooses a card from the pile. Once all the cards are matched, the game is over. The student with the higher number of matches wins.
