Activity for ages 4 to 6.
This sight word game is a perfect example of how a simple activity can be great fun AND learning! It’s guaranteed to bring a smile to kids’ faces during word work time or sight word practice. Just print the game (below) and you’re ready to play!
To prep, I printed the game (below). You can use either the sight word or alphabet sheet, depending on what your students are working on at the moment.
See? I promised it was simple.
Sight Word Squares
Each player picked a sight word to practice during the game. Player One chose “the” and Player Two chose “me”.
Then they picked a different colored marker and started taking turns connecting two dots with a line.
After a few rounds, Player One drew a line that made a square. To claim it, he wrote his sight word in the middle.
The players continued taking turns drawing lines and writing their sight word in the middle of each box they made.
It was exciting to see the strategizing and excitement play out.
When all of the squares had been claimed, the children counted up their squares. Since Player Two had the most, she won the game!
So simple, right?!
