Here’s a super simple sight word game you can play this summer to keep those words fresh & sneak in some writing:
- paper/pencil or dry erase board/marker
- Sight words: use your Word Wall or you can pick 20-30 word cards-I would alphabetize them first (similar to a Word Wall)
Object of Game: To guess the word that the other person is thinking of by listening to clues.
How to Play:
- For 2 or more players.
- The person(s) who is guessing writes numbers 1-5 on her paper/dry erase board.
- The clue giver gives 5 clues (one clue at a time) as to which word he is thinking of.
- With each clue given, the guesser(s) writes down a word that fits the clue. (By clue #5, the guesser should have the correct word written down.)
Here are a couple of examples from our game time:
- I spy a word on the Word Wall. (He wrote keep.)
- I spy a word with three letters. (He wrote see.)
- I spy a word with a w in it. (He wrote saw.)
- I spy a word that starts with the letter n. (He wrote new.)
- I spy a word that has the /ou/ sound in it. (He got it.)
- I spy a word on the Word Wall. (He wrote she.)
- I spy a word with 5 letters. (He wrote shout.)
- I spy a word with two e’s. (He wrote there.)
- I spy a word that starts with the letter w. (He got it in 4 guesses!)
