Practicing sight words just got so much more fun! As kids race to reach the rainbow first in this sight word game, they read, write and spell their sight words along the way.

Prepping the editable 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 ready to play the sight word game.
Unicorn Race Sight Word Game
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 the word 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 during the sight word game until Middle Brother reached the finish line first and won!
The boys reset their game pieces on start and began again – continuing until they filled their record sheet. When it was filled, they begged to play again! It was a fun way to practice sight words – no flashcards needed!
