The prep for this activity was super simple.
I printed, laminated, and cut out the game using my paper slicer. Then I grabbed a cute tin to hold all of the game pieces.
Sight Word Game
To start, I told my small group that we would each take turns drawing a card and reading the sight word out loud.
If it was a “sweet” sight word (pineapple) then they would keep it in their own pile.
If it was a wacky watermelon card, they would do a “sweet swap” and trade all of their cards with another player.
But if they drew a “sour” lemon card, the students had to put their whole stack of cards back into the deck.
I set a timer for ten minutes and they were off.
Going in a circle, each child drew a card, read the word out loud and either kept the card or completed the action.
When the timer rang, the student with the most sight words won that round.
The kids enjoyed the silly activity and I loved that they were getting sight word reading practice.
