Sight Word Strategies Linky Party

Hello Sight Word Enthusiasts! Welcome to my first linky party! [Cue D.J. playing music- everyone is laughing and having fun.] I hope you are able to find some fantastic ideas and resources here! Please feel free to join us on this linky.

1. Grab the picture to display on your blog.
2. At the botton of your post, please link back to my blog Teacher to the Core  { } . When you link back, people can keep reading amazing sight word tips.  (Thank you, Kristin from A Teeny Tiny Teacher, for teaching me all about linky parties)

I offer you a game... I play this with my 6 year old son and my first grade students. It was orginally called OH NO! The game OH NO! came from my teacher friend Mer. Where she got .... who knows?

I call this little variation:
Wild About Reading 
Wild about Sight Words

Here is how to play: Using the download, write out the sight words that are a struggle
or sight words from your current list.

Place cards in a container, and take turns drawing and reading the cards.
I place cards from the old lists into the container so that he stays sharp on those too.
His teacher provides cards for the kids. Thanks Mrs W!
If you can read the card(s), then you keep them. Here are our two piles.
Follow directions on the “Character” cards and have fun!  When the character card says “take”, then you take that number from the container and try to read them. You keep what you can read.  If it says “put back”, you must put 2 cards back into the container.
The person with the most cards wins!
Jackson loves this game. We play it about once every two weeks.

This also works for phonics sounds.
 I have provided diagraphs and blends in the download.

Get the game {here} 

Contest Fun!

  20. I love your reading games. What cute ideas. I would love to win your giveaway. Thanks. Deborah

  21. What a great, fun game! Thanks for offering it. Parents are always appreciative when they receive practical suggestions for practicing at home. One thing: on the first page there is a random "@" symbol to the right of the Take 3 Wild Card. I'm thinking it probably doesn't belong there. :) Thanks again!
