Sight word games are a fun way to help kids memorize the most common words in written text. Cookie Word Bake takes the fun to a whole new level of sugary awesomeness. Kids love “baking” sight word cookies so much that they don’t even realize they’re learning the the first 48 kindergarten Dolch words.

To prep, I printed each of the four game boards and the cookie sight words on cardstock paper to give them extra strength.
Then, I cut out each cookie sight word and laminated the set so it would hold up to plenty of play.
A little bit of prep work was worth it to have a game that could be played over and over again as we practiced learning these important words.
I placed a game board in front of each chair where the players would be sitting and placed a cup in the middle to hold the individual cookie cards the kids would be drawing from.
I made sure to select a cup that wasn’t clear so that players could not see through it.
I mixed up the cookie cards and placed them upside down in the cup so that players were drawing cards from the pile randomly.
Cookie Sight Word Game
To play this sight word game, the players took turns drawing one cookie sight word card, reading the word aloud and looking for a match on their baking sheet game board.
If they had a match, they got to keep the cookie and the game went on to the next player’s turn.
If they didn’t have a match, they returned the cookie to the center cup and it became the next player’s turn.
The game continued until one player had filled their entire cookie baking sheet with matching words.
There are four separate baking sheet game boards each with 12 unique sight words. Between all four boards, there are a total of 48 cookie cards.
I would suggest removing cookie cards from the cup that match unused baking sheet game boards if you are playing with fewer than four players.
Additionally, if you want to speed up game play, you can allow the players to draw three cookie cards during their turn, instead of one.
Oh, and eating real baked cookies for dessert after game play are optional but highly recommended. 🙂
