We have talked before building early reading skills by mastering sight words. Sight words are a small group of words (approximately 300-500) that account for large portions of the common texts we read. For example, words such as: this, that, then, he, she, and etc are considered sight words. Due to their high frequency, it is critical that students cultivating early literacy skills develop their sight word recognition skills.
When it comes to building sight word proficiency I have previously shared my On a Roll game. I use On a Roll as an early finisher activity or as a literacy center. Today I bring you another game I often use in literacy centers or as a stand alone activity. Sight Word Go Fish uses the Dolch Sight words, and comes in kindergarten and second grade level words. In each download you will find detailed instructions on preparation and game play. Everything is available for download at my Teachers pay Teachers store!
