Today, I’m sharing my first Summertime Sight Word Review Game called Sight Word Racing. I used this game when I was a classroom teacher and it’s oh, so easy-peasy. To see all of the summer sight word games, click here or on the image above.
- Sight Words- If your child is in school, hopefully her teacher gave her a list of the words she learned during the school year. If not, chances are the words your child learned are either from the Dolch list or Fry’s list. I have also created word cards with many of these words. You can download them HERE.
- Pencil/paper (we used a dry erase board)
How to Play:
1. Display some sight words. How many you decide on is up to you. I picked 12 longer words for the game. Shorter words would actually make the game harder. You could also make it more difficult by picking 12 very visually similar words (where, what, why, etc.)
3. Begin to spell the word so the child can see. The slower you write the word, the easier it will be for the child.
5. If the child can read/call out the word before you finish spelling it, she gets a point. If you finish the entire word before she reads it, you get a point. The game is supposed to be set up so the child will win. 😉
And there you have it. A simple, yet fun sight word game to keep those words fresh for next school year!
