Stacking Sight Word Game

Sight words are something we practice on a daily basis and they can get old after awhile. I try to incorporate new games frequently so that they stay engaged. My latest sight word game, Stacking Sight Words has quickly become a classroom favorite.

Supplies Needed

• foam sheets ( grab them here on Amazon or at your local craft supply store)
• scissors
• permanent marker
• Stacking Sight Word printable (grab for FREE at the end of this post)

How to Make

1. Cut the foam into approximately 1×1 inch squares. They don’t have to be perfect or exactly the same size.
2. Use a permanent marker and write a sight word on each square.
3. Store them in a labeled baggie or container.

How to Play

• Put your students into groups. Each group needs 1 bag of sight word squares.
• Have them spread out all of the squares face down.
• They take turns turning over one square at a time. If they say the word correctly, they get to stack it. If they say it wrong, it goes back into the pile face down. Each time they get a word right, they stack it on top of the other.

• Once a square is placed onto the stack, they cannot touch it again or straighten up the stack.
• Eventually, their stack will start to wobble and eventually fall over.

I love hearing “NOOOOOO! WE ONLY HAD TWO MORE!”

• Once the stack falls, they must choose one of the squares and write that word on the game sheet. Then they use that word in a sentence.
• When everyone in their group has written a sentence, then they can start another round.
This activity is the perfect sight word game to incorporate into your word work routine. You can grab the recording sheet above by filling out the form below. This recording sheet along with a direction page for centers will be delivered right to your inbox!

Encouraging Growth as a Teacher by Reflecting On Your Math Instruction

As the end of the year draws near, it’s important for our students to reflect on what they’ve learned in the past year and review
