5 Simple Game Boards for Sight Word Practice
and After School Link Up
I love my class this year. Well, I love my class every year, but this year is especially exciting because they are what I call “true” first graders. By “true” first graders I mean that a majority of them are not yet readers and therefore I get to teach all the basics! I love teaching kids to read!! So being that my students are true first graders, we need lots of simple and easy to manage sight word games. As you know, I have shared many sight word activities on BMTM, but needed something that we could all use at the same time for a quick 10 minutes here and a quick 10 minutes there. And so these 5 simple game boards for sight word practice were born.
What You Need to Prepare the Games:
- markers (optional)
How to Prepare the Games:
- Print the templates. There are 5 games total and each game has two templates.
- Glue the templates together.
- Print and cut the cards on cards tock or other durable paper.
- Color the card templates if desired.
How to Play 5 Simple Game Boards for Sight Word Practice
Place the board on a table top of other flat surface.
Shuffle the cards and place them face down. Grab a playing piece for each player. We used pebbles.
Player 1 chooses a card and does what the card says. He then reads the sight word on the pumpkin he lands on. Then player 2 does the same.
The game continues until someone reaches “end” or until the allotted time is up.

AFTER SCHOOL LINK UP
The After School Link Up is a great place to share ideas and to find new ideas to do with your children after school or in your homeschool. The After School Link Up goes live every Monday. So, if you are a blogger, an educator or just someone looking for some good ideas, be sure to stop by Boy Mama Teacher Mama (or the other co-hosts) on Mondays and see what others have to share.
I had fun visiting the posts from last weeks linky party. There are so many wonderful ideas out there!
Here are a few of my favorites….
We are deep into losing teeth in this house and always looking for new and different ideas. I love these FREE printables from Moms and Munchkins.
Skip counting is fun, but can also be tricky. I love how Playdough to Plato makes it a gross motor activity as well as a counting activity!
And now the linky…
