Sight Word Games

Sidewalk Writing

Materials: paintbrush, words to learn, a cup of water, pencil, a pad of paper

To play, say a word and paint it on the sidewalk using the paintbrush dipped in water. Your child will copy the word as many times as possible on the paper before it dries. How many times was your child able to write the word? Get a point for each time he was able to write it before it disappeared. BONUS: If your child can write the word again on the other side of the paper, without looking, he gets an extra 5 points!

Cover Your Word

Materials: alphabet dice, index cards, counters, new word to learn

You will need 2 or more players. Give each player an index card with a sight word written on it. To be fair, all words on the cards should have the same amount of letters.

Take turns rolling the dice. If you have any of the letters in your word, cover them with a marker on your index card. Go around the table, taking turns rolling the dice and covering letters. The first to cover all the letters in their word wins.

Concentration

Materials: Index cards, list of words to review with your child

Choose up to 10 words your child is somewhat familiar with. Write each word on two separate index cards. (Pencil may be better as the ink does not show through the back.) Mix up the cards and turn them all face-down on the table.

Play by taking turns picking two cards to try to find a match. Read each card that is turned over to compare. When you get a match, you take both cards and can take another turn.

NOTE: This is a great game for an adult to play with a child. You have equal chances to win, and your reading the cards will reinforce the words for your child.
