Reindeer Sight Words Matching Game

Activity for ages 4 to 6.

These adorable reindeer matching cards will make December sight word practice fun and festive! Add the set to your literacy centers and word work time for a quick and easy review game.

Getting Ready

Prepping this game was super simple!

I just printed the game cards and then used a paper cutter to cut around the black lines.

I like to laminate our game cards so the kiddos can play with them over and over again.

Reindeer Matching Game

To play, the first thing we did was flip all of the game cards over face down on the table.

Player One turned over a card and read the word “my.”

Then she turned over a second card and read the word out loud: “she.”

Since the cards did not match, she turned them back over and it was Player Two’s turn.

She turned over a card and read “two.”

Her next pick was also “two” and since they matched, she kept the pair and took another turn.

No match on the next turn, so it was back to Player One!

They continued to play until all of the cards had been matched.

When they were finished, each player counted the number of matches they found and the person with the most was declared the winner.

Such a motivating way to work on sight words!

    When I try to print a freebie I get a pop up message that says it is a password protected document and so prevents me from printing. Any suggestions?
