8. Sight Word Fishing - This card game includes kindergarten, first grade, and second grade sight words. The teacher decides which list(s) to use in the center. Students play this game with a partner. Students cut out their sight word cards. They mix up the cards. Each partner gets five cards. The rest of the cards go in a pile in the center. One partner goes first and asks the other if he or she has one of the sight words in his or her hand. For example, the first partner asks, "Do you have "and"? If the partner does have the word "and", it is given to the asking partner. The asking partner pairs the two words together and lays them down. The asking partner has another turn and continues asking for a word card as long as he or she gets a match from the partner. If the partner does not have the asked word card, the first partner takes the top card from the word card pile. It is the other partner's turn. The game goes on until one of the partners runs out of cards. The partner with the most pairs wins.
9. Sunny Synonyms - Students match synonym word card pairs and write the pairs on their recording sheet.
10. Digraph Sort - Students read words. They find the words that have the digraphs as listed on the recording sheet. The students write the words under the correct digraph on the recording sheet.
