Activity for ages 5 to 8.
I love turning boring old sight word practice into addictive fun for kids and this simple penguin sight word game does just that. Just type your words onto the board and hit “print”. You instantly have a ready to play literacy center, word work activity or homeschool game.
P.S. Be sure to grab our best selling Editable Sight Word Games too!
To prep, I simply typed in Middle Brother’s (age 5) sight word list onto the board by clicking each box. Then I printed it onto cardstock to give it extra durability.
I grabbed a die and a couple of buttons to use as playing pieces. Viola! We were ready to go.
The rules of the game were just as simple as the prep.
Middle Brother rolled the die and moved his playing piece that many spaces. Since his first roll was a two, he moved just two spots.
Then he read and spelled the word out loud.
(Although Middle Brother wasn’t ready for the extra challenge, kids could also write the word down on their record sheet.)
He rolled again, moved his piece, read the word out loud and then spelled it…
One roll after the next, he raced his way to the finish line.
Each time he landed on a fish, he lost a turn – penguins are slow fishermen after all! 😉
