All the words in this game are from Fry’s Sight Words: First Hundred Words.
Game cards come in six sets, one set for each activity. Red and orange cards are to be read aloud. Yellow cards should be written in sentences (on a whiteboard or in a reading or writing notebook). Green cards can be drawn. Blue cards are questions for the students to read aloud and then answer. And purple cards are movement activities or silly things to do to keep it fun and engaging. All sets of cards employ use of Fry's First Hundred sight words. Questions and drawing cards include both normal and silly prompts.

LOW PREP- All YOU need to do is print (on colored paper), laminate (if you want), and cut up all the cards! (or have some kids with good fine motor skills cut them for you). Print out the dice color key. Give the kids a dice and the cards and they're free to play!
This game is great for small group lessons so you can monitor their sight word skills, model turn-taking, and enjoy some "play" time with your kids. Students can also work independently or in small groups to work on their reading and teamwork skills.
This is a great activity to slide in some social skills teaching like taking turns, helping a partner, working together, and being a good sport win/lose, while still working on important academic skills.
