Valentine Sight Word Game
This is a fun game to help children learn sight words. There are 225 words plus the number words zero through ten, and 10 color words. Copy the game on cardstock and laminate the cards.
The children will take turns drawing cards. If they can read the word, they keep it, if they can’t they discard it. I don’t have my kids discard the word if they don’t know it the first time playing. I tell them the word and have them repeat it.
If a special card is drawn, they do as it says.
Broken Heart! Oh, NO! All your cards must GO! (Lose cards to the discard pile.)
Love! YAY! Take 2 cards today. (Take 2 cards from the deck.)
Candy! YUM! Take a card from everyone. (The card takes a card from each player.)
The child with the most words after all cards are drawn is the winner.

I have also included a page of blank cards to add any words you may need.
I pick 10 to 12 words that my group needs help with to place in my game. I put 3 to 4 of each of these words in the game.
