Awesome Star Wars Sight Word GameGetting Ready

I printed the free sight word cards {HERE} on cardstock to give them extra durability. {I picked the set with a blue background but I also included an identical white version in case you want to conserve ink.} Then I grabbed my scissors and cut them apart. Easy peasy.

For the next step, I transformed a pool noodle I’d picked up at the Dollar Store into a lightsaber. I cut off about a foot from one end to make the pool noodle less floppy and then wrapped it with some shiny silver duct tape and a strip of sparkly black Scotch Brand expressions tape to make a futuristic handle.

I taped the sight word cards to our fence outside so my son would have plenty of room to joust and invited him to join me.

The moment my son set eyes on the Darth Vader cards, he fell instantly smitten. He eagerly grabbed his imaginary lightsaber to start battling the evil Darth Vader sight words. I had him read the word, spell it and then read it again to help his brain memorize.

“Away. A-W-A-Y. Away!” he called out as he whipped his saber through the air.

Star Wars Sight Words!“Help. H-E-L-P. Help,” he chanted next.

Star Wars Themed Sight Word Game!One sight word after another, he defeated Darth Vader and practiced reading and spelling the top 40 sight words in English.

When he was finished a few minutes later, we collected the cards and brought them inside so he could record his conquests on an official Star Wars Sight Word sheet. So fun and motivating!!

    I would love to get this but it only includes the sight word form, not the Darth Vader word cards. Hope you can remedy this. Thanks for the freebie.

    I see several people already beat me to it. 🙂 It looks like a super fun way to practice sight words. I hope you can put up the link for the Darth Vader sight word cards. Thanks so much for everything you do!

    I love the resources on your website. I teach English on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua and your posts are an invaluable resource for preparing my classes. I especially love the science projects. They really don’t have science classes and I love opening up this world for the students. Thank you.

    Malia, this is such a cute activity. However, for some reason I am unable to click on the link and get the death vader sight words cards. I just get the work sheet to fill in the words. Thank you for your help.

    Hi,
    I love this resource, I have printed and laminated the cards and my kindergarten class use light sabers I made for them to play. I am hoping to make some more to extend the game. Where did you get the Darth Vader clipart for these cards? I would love to get the matching clipart for other Star Wars characters.
    Thanks,
    Corrina

    These are adorable! I would love to see a Leia version! My daughter loves Star Wars, but really she’s just in it for the princess. 🙂
