Need to work on sight word recognition and fluency? This is a sight word game (with an optional recording sheet) for Kindergarten - Second grade with adorable summer clip art, including water balloons, flip flops, and boys and girls swimming! This activity can be played during back to school, a Beach Day in the middle of the winter, or at the end of the year. I created it because I needed a fun and engaging way to practice sight words with my students.

My goal was to create a resource that could be prepped once and used for several years. Plus, it's editable, so you can customize it to the needs of your students!

What's Included in this set?

  • 172 Pre-primer, kindergarten, first, and second grade word cards from the Dolch sight word list
  • Editable to create your own word cards to match your word list or summer theme
  • In full color and blackline if you need to save on ink

It's played like the game Kaboom or BANG.

How to Play:

  1. Spread the cards out into a pile.
  2. Choose a card from the pile
  3. Read the card. If you can read the card, keep it. If you can’t, put the card back. (If they are playing with a partner or group, I suggest having them help the student read the word if they missed it so they can learn it for next time). :)
  4. Special Cards
  • Splash! – Put all of your cards back into the pile
  • Water Balloon – Draw another card
  • Lose a turn – If playing with a partner or group, you lose a turn
  • Skip – If playing with a partner or group, you skip the person who has a turn after you

Print in color or print the word lists on different colored cardstock to differentiate learning for struggling, at grade level, and advanced readers.

This is a PowerPoint file. To edit, you can use any font you would like. I used KG Miss Kindergarten on TpT from KG fonts. All of her fonts are free. Simply download, right click on the font and install. Then, open the PowerPoint file and insert a text box to edit.
