Make the Sight Word Board Game

Creating the game board is easy – all you need is a poster board, pen and list of sight words. Using a poster board, create a path. The path can look like a snake or contain squares similar to Chutes and Ladders. Ideally each space should be approximately one-inch so you can write a sight word in it. Use pennies, dice or a spinner from another game to advance on the game board and cheerios (just don’t let your child eat them before the end of the game) or match box cars work perfect as game pawns.

To do this activity, students will read the sight words that are in the top boxes. They will then find the words in the text boxes below and rainbow trace them in the color shown. This is such a simple activity, but my students LOVE anything that has to do with crayons, markers, tracing/coloring, etc... I may even extend the activity and have the students then write the words out or write sentences using the given sight words (just on the back of their paper or in their writing to learn binders). The possibilities are endless, and this activity could easily be converted for spelling too! Download it here.
