I created this template for my own personal use, so that I can update it and change the cards around as my (prep) son's sight word list expands.
With these cards you can also play card games such as snap, go fish and memory.
To Play Sight word Uno: Each player gets dealt seven cards, the remaining cards create a draw pile face down between the players. Next to the draw pile there should be space for the discard pile, the first card from the draw pile should be turned face up to begin the discard pile.
Choose a method to start that works best for your group (you can roll a dice and have the lowest or highest number start; youngest or oldest player could start, player to the left of the dealer could start etc). Play usually follows a clockwise direction. Taking turns, each player looks through their cards and try and match the card in the discard pile either by colour or word. As each word is placed into the discard pile the player must say the word as the card is being placed down.
The draw four and draw two cards can be played matched by colour, the next person playing will have to pick up two or four cards before taking their turn. Alternatively if they too have a draw two or draw four card (whichever has just been played) they can play their card and the following person will have to pick up the total of both cards.
When you only have one card left in your hand you must knock and say "UNO", first one to discard their entire hand wins. Person left with the most cards at the end of the game loses (or alternatively you can continue playing until everyone uses their entire hand and then the last one left loses).
Being a repetitive game, usually to keep it fast paced if my son is struggling with the word I then say it and have him repeat it, I find that when the word comes up again he remembers it. This game is about having fun while revising your sight words!!
Other games can be played with the same concept of repeating the sight words as the cards are played.
