Our students need to turn a LOT of high frequency words into sight words … words they recognize instantly without sounding out or guessing.
In this sight word series, we’ve talked extensively about how to TEACH sight words. But how do we practice them? After all, students need to encounter the words multiple times to orthographically map them.

Take a peek at some of the games
Roll and read is a classic favorite. Students roll a die and practice reading the words in that column. You’ll get an editable version of this game in 10 different formats – one for each month of the school year – plus a non-seasonal game you can use anytime you’d like!
With Cover All, students use a die to move around the board. Each time they read a word, they look for the corresponding picture on their board. If they have the picture, they cover it. The first to “cover all,” wins! Again, you’ll get 10 different versions – one for each school month plus a non-seasonal game.
Kids love Chutes and Ladders (ask me how I know – I’ve played the classic version waaay too many times). In this game, students move around the board with a die and read the word they land on. If they land on a ladder, they move up. If they land on a snake, doooown they go.
(You know the drill … 10 versions are included, including a non-seasonal game.)
15 different types of games are included

This is, hands down, my favorite and most used resource of anything phonics related that I’ve ever downloaded from anywhere on the internet. I use these games all the time for practicing the phonics skills that we are working on. Being able to customize them with words that are specific to my son’s needs, chef’s kiss.
Thank you, Anna!
Thank you so much for this kind feedback, Melissa! It’s very appreciated!
Aw. I really want to help my friend’s kids who are struggling with phonics and everything else but it’s impossible to download any of these activities. There are no links to download any of them?
Unfortunately we are having a tech issue and none of the download boxes are working! I’ve reached out to tech support, but it’s a bit early in the day. Hopefully by later today we’ll be all set!
I love these!! Thank you for supporting me in my classroom with all these wonderful resources!
I’d love to win more!!
