Sight Word Targets

We love sight word games and these printable sight word targets rank at the top of our must-try list. Kids love aiming, hitting, reading and writing their word lists. The activity is great to use as a literacy center, word work practice or homeschool activity.

Getting Ready

To prep, I printed the targets (below) on cardstock to give them extra durability. I cut along the grey lines to separate the squares and then taped them up on the wall.

Note: If you’ll be using the game in a classroom, you may want to laminate the cards for reuse.

I grabbed my boys’ plastic bow and arrow and a couple of pencils they could use to write their words on the record sheet. We were all set!

Such a fun sight word game! Play sight word target practice. This would be perfect for a literacy center or word work activity.

Sight Word Target Practice

The boys couldn’t wait to play.  Big Brother (age 6) went first. He picked a target, read the word out loud and then launched his arrow to try and shoot it.

“This” Big Brother read. He pulled back his bowstring and shot the arrow straight ahead. Direct hit!

He grabbed his pencil and spelled “this” next to number one on his record sheet.Sight Word Target Practice. Such a fun sight word game! My boys will love it.

Then it was Middle Brother’s turn to read, launch and record.

The boys loved the challenge of trying to shoot the targets and I loved that they were having fun reading and writing sight words. The set included the 18 words:

are, can, the, this, and, how, to, you, like, be, see, me, my, our, no, yes, for, from
