Taking Turns

I also had the girls take turns writing a letter from their sight words on the whiteboard. For example, if the sight word is "funny," Brooke will write the f, Kate will write the u and so forth.

Erudition Sight Word Game
This is a great sight word game that takes you on an adventure across town. Enjoy an ice cream cone along the way, as you see common landmarks along the way. Recognize a sight word and you can earn a bonus roll. Be the first player to reach the library and you are the winner!

Sight Word Games: Looking for a fun way to practice sight words? Write a different sight word on each foam square. Then, put them all in a bag. Pair up the students and have them take turns picking a foam square out of the bag. If they can read the sight word that's on the square they get to keep it and add it to their stack. With each word they get their stack grows. If their stack of foam squares topples over they have to put them back in the bag (the stacks usually don't fall over until they get past 10 squares-so make a lot of words for this game!).

Sandwich Sight Words

I love this idea. Make all your sandwich pieces and there is a recording sheet to go with it. Students build a sandwich saying the words as they build. Then they record their words here.

Tracing Sight Words

We started using a sight word notebook today. This will keep most of the sight word practice in one place. Today, I wrote all the sight words in pen. Then I directed my daughter to trace the word have in yellow; then the word am in purple, and so forth. A fun way to practice identifying the words.

Sight Word games

I found this idea here. Take your flashcards and hide a gingerbread man or a santa under one of the words. Have your child read and pick worrds one at a time until he finds the gingerbread man or santa! Click to picture to go to the link to print your gingerbread man or santa.
