This game would be utilized during independent centers to build sight word recognition. The words on the football cards come from Fry's first 100 words list, along with a few extras from the sight word list at my school. There is also a page of football cards that are blank if you would like to include some of the words you are using at your school.
Students place their game piece on the opposite end of their team color. They pick a sight word card from the pile and if they can read it, they can record it on their sheet and move their game piece 10 yards. The first student to read and record 10 sight words wins.
This file includes a football field game board, football sight word cards, and a recording sheet. Please email if you have any questions or would like to see this file with dolch sight words! I'd be glad to arrange something with you!
