Oh, No! Three in a Row! Sight Words Game (Pre-primer)
All 40 words in the pre-primer word list appear at least once on the first 21 pages using two of the words per page.
The 40 words included on these first 21 pages are a, and, away, big, blue, can, come, down, find, for, funny, go, help, here, I, in, is, it, jump, little, look, make, me, my, not, one, play, red, run, said, see, the, three, to, two, up, we, where, yellow, and you.
To use: All of these pages can be laminated or placed in page protectors, and then placed in a three ring binder. Students can use dry erase markers to play the game, and then wipe clear and play the next page in the binder. You can assign students to words with which they are having difficulty, if desired.
To Play: The first 21 pages are great for partners in literacy centers or early finishers. Students choose one of the two words written on their word card to use to play the game. Two children will play each word card. The object for the child is to WIN the game; however, our main objective is to get the students familiar with the sight words and to “practice” writing each word. The competitive nature of the game accomplishes our goal. Odds of any page having a potential to achieve a winning combination was not determined in the designing of the pages. After deciding who will “be” each word, students will take turns writing their chosen word into an empty box with a dry erase marker, trying to have their word be the first three in a row to win the game. Students can “block” their opponent by writing their word in the space.
To play the last 40 pages, students can complete these independently at literacy centers, as an early finisher or with a partner as a partner read. These pages have simple phrases that can be read from left to right for students to practice the pre-primer words. These pages have various words from the pre-primer list. This set has 40 pages with one game page for each missing word (40 total words). Each page has one word missing. Students are to write the missing word that would make three in a row for a win. Again, these can be laminated or put in page protectors in a three ring binder and used with a dry erase marker as a center activity or for early finishers.
I hope your students have fun with this sight word game!
