The game is simple. You take turns drawing cards out of a container. If you can read the sight word you keep the card. If not, the card goes back in. Whoever collects the most cards wins the game. Beware of the BANG cards though. If you draw one, you have to put back all of the cards you have collected. Can be adapted for any subject, any grade level.
Zap It...a game I learned in grad school. Put high frequency words on sticks (these are foam sticks) and write zap it on a few sticks. The kids pull sticks from a container and read the words. If someone gets Zap It, all of the sticks go back in the bin. Great word work #daily5
Game for sight words. Canister is filled with cups and each cup has a sight word on it. When a sight word is read correctly, they can start building a tower. If they get a word wrong or knock over the tower or the tower falls, they have to start over.
Each child got a list, clip board, pencil and one flash card (on a headband). Then the students roamed around the room reading sight words. They drew a line from their peer's name to the sight word they read off their peer's forehead. OH MY GOODNESS - Have to do this one!
Dollar store photo albums… Turn them into flashcard fun! Easy to write and wipe, just insert what you are working on. You could even just insert white paper and have them work on writing sight words, so many ways to use them!
