I’m always looking for new ways to practice sight words with my boys. I created a Fall sight word freebie that’s very simple to use. You’ll just need to print the sheet, write some words you’re working on in the circles, and grab a die and markers.

How to Play Fall Roll & Stamp:
1. Print the freebie. (Get it here: Fall Roll & Stamp – the measured mom)
2. Write a sight word in each circle. Choose a set of words your child or class has been working on. You may want to focus on words that your reader has been struggling with – but be sure to put some easy ones in there too.
3. For one player — have him roll the die, find a matching number on the board, and read the word in the adjoining circle. If he reads the word correctly he can stamp it with a Do-a-Dot marker, cover it with a playing piece, or color it.
4. If you have two children at the same level, you can make this a two-person game. Have them take turns rolling the die and covering or coloring circles – but each of them should always use the same color. When every space is covered, each child counts his color to see who’s the winner. Since a lot depends on the roll of the die and not just skill, this can be a game you play with your child, too.
Since my boys (ages 3 and 5) are at very different levels when it comes to reading, I chose a different set of sight words for each of them. I printed basic sight words we’ve learned for my Three (see above) and color and number words for my Five.
