These easy-to-follow sight word games are a motivating alternative to drilling flashcards. They make super fun literacy centers, word work stations or homeschool activities.
Sight words make up a HUGE percentage of the text kids read, so memorizing them is a great way to increase students’ reading fluency.

Treasure Hunt Sight Word Game
To customize the sight word games, I simply typed our 18 words on the getting started page and let the file pop the words into the right spots on both games.
Then, I printed the Treasure Hunt game board and record sheets and grabbed our playing die.
The prep was as quick and easy as it comes!
My son rolled first. It was a four, so he moved his LEGO four spaces and read the word out loud, “for.”
We both wrote the word on our record sheet under the column “Player One.”
Then it was my turn to roll, read and write.
We continued playing until my son reached the finish line first and won the game. We happily slid our pieces back to start and began round two.
Egg Flip Sight Word Game
To prep the second game, I printed Egg Flip on cardstock and laminated the pages to give them extra durability.
I cut along the black lines to separate the eggs and spread them out face up on a flat surface.
I grabbed a spatula and invited the kids to come and play.
We assigned my son as the caller and named my middle son (a kindergartener) the flipper.
The caller secretly picked a word and read it out loud. Then the flipper used the spatula to flip over that egg.
To give the boys practice writing the words, they had to spell them on their record sheet like this:
Play continued until all of the eggs had been flipped and then the boys switched roles and started again.
