- foam sheets ( grab them here on Amazon or at your local craft supply store)
- permanent marker
- Stacking Sight Word printable (grab for FREE at the end of this post)
How to Make
- Cut the foam into approximately 1×1 inch squares. They don’t have to be perfect or exactly the same size.
- Use a permanent marker and write a sight word on each square.
- 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.
