First Grade Spring-Themed Sight Word Game

· · · · · · · · · ·

I’m a total sucker for Target’s Dollar Spot.  It’s my first stop every single time I go to Target, and no matter what my intentions are, I always leave with something.  Such was the case a few years ago when I came across these Easter erasers.  I’m not sure if they’re selling them again this year.  If not, I’m sure they will have some that are very similar!

I picked up a few bags not knowing what I would do with them.  They sat in my “Teacher Supplies Pile” for quite some time before it dawned on me to use them for a game.  They could be used for all sorts of games, but I decided to create a Sight Word game to use them with. 


Students play in partners and take turns reading words on the board.  If they read the word correctly, they get to place a marker over it.  The first person to get four markers in a row wins!

When creating the boards, I had an end-of-first-grade student in mind and used both the Dolch (Pre-Primer-1st Grade) and Fry (First Two Hundred) Word Lists.  The lists contain many of the same words, and I think it only helps to cover words from both lists. đŸ™‚
