This summer, I’ve spent each Monday highlighting a simple sight word game you can play with your child to keep words fresh in her mind. If you’ve missed any of them, click here or on the image above.
Today, I wanted to post a simple game called Word-Wac-Woe. If you’ve used any of my Phonics by The Book curriculum, this will look familiar to you. 😉
*Each player needs a Word-Wac-Woe board. You can either place it in a plastic sleeve protector and use dry erase markers or you can simply print them on paper and use pencil, pen or marker.
*sight words you want to review on individual cards (index cards work just as well for this!)
How to Play:
1. Pick 15-20 sight word cards
2. Lay them out so both people can see them. Read over the words quickly to make sure the student knows/remembers them.
3. Both players write 9 words from the list on their Word-Wac-Woe boards. It’s okay if both players write a few of the same words.
4. When players’ boards are filled in, mix up the sight word cards and place them face-down.
5. Players take turns flipping over the top sight word card and reading it out loud.
7. The first player to cross off all his words, wins! You could also play until the first player gets 4 corners or 3 in a row.
It’s that simple…and FUN! This is one that ALuv begs to play over and over.
