For students learning how to read, sight words are of great importance. While phonics will provide your students with a solid foundation in reading, sight words are just as important for fluency and speed. Sight words are words that cannot be sounded out phonetically, and thus must be memorized. We’ve put together a fun set of games you can use to teach your students common sight words.
Sight Word Games & Activities
Printable Roll & Cover Games
Roll and cover games are very simple to set up and are essentially no-prep. Generally, you’ll need a single die or pair of dice, and a handful of small manipulatives you can use to cover certain areas of the gameboard. In this case, you’ll need one die and a handful of your choice of holiday decoration. We suggest using gumdrops, peppermints, red-hots, mini-poms, or even scented playdough.
Black & White Sight Word Games
If you’re worried about all the color ink required, you can certainly print these games in black and white or greyscale and still have a working game that will engage your students….especially when you use colorful candies or mini-poms.
Print this set on cardstock or laminate for reuse. Students will work on 36-different sight words with the entire set.
