Unicorn Sight Word Game

Activity for ages 5 to 8.

Practicing sight words just got so much more fun!

As kids race to reach the rainbow first, they read, write and spell their sight words along the way. Sneaky learning is the best, isn’t it?!

Getting Ready

Prepping the editable sight word game was a cinch!

I typed a word into each spot on the board game. Then I printed one board for the boys to share and two record sheets – one for each of them.

I grabbed a playing die and a couple of game pieces and we were all set.

Unicorn Race

Big Brother (age 7) rolled the die first.

A three! He moved three spots and read and spelled the word “love”.

Then he wrote the word on his sheet in the column marked “Player One”.

Middle Brother (age 5) was next. He rolled the die and moved his playing piece five spots.

He carefully sounded out the letters and then spelled it out loud: “Can. C-A-N.”

Then we worked together to write the word under his “Player Two” column while Big Brother did the same.

One roll after the next, the boys took turns rolling, reading, spelling and writing their words until Middle Brother reached the finish line first and won the game.

The boys reset their game pieces on start and began again – continuing until they filled their record sheet.

    Would you be able to include a grayscale/black and white game? I really appreciate that this resource is free and I understand if that’s just not something that you can add with an already excellent, no-charge resource.
