One of their favorites is I have, Who Has. We play that pretty much every other day. Thank goodness there are SO many versions on TPT to choose from, because I seriously CAN NOT get that game to line up when I make it! LOL
But this week I switched it up and introduced Sight Word Races! This is not my idea. In fact, I have seen so many versions out there, who knows who invented it? But it is genius. My kiddos especially LOVED that one word comes in 1st, another 2nd and then a 3rd. They were begging to keep playing to find out who would be 4th, 5th and 6th. I love firsties!
I chose 6 words that I KNEW they needed to work on and filled them into each row. Then I gave every kiddo a dice and let them at it! I told them they were the track announcers, so each time they rolled that number they had to announce the "car" (word) that was coming around the track. With all of the announcing and dice dropping it was noisy, but you just cant quiet the "we are ALL on task noisy"...
With sight words on my brain I came across these guys at the Lakeshore Outlet...
I have the level one version. I am super excited to match these cubes with some reusable sight word race cards for my word work center.
So, want to do some sight word racing of your own? Just click the pic to get my version of sight word races and have some fun!

What do you do to help your kiddos learn their sight words? I am ALWAYS on the lookout for new ideas!
