Editable Dinosaur Sight Word Game

This dinosaur sight word game is perfect for literacy centers or small groups in Pre-K and Kindergarten. It’s so fun to play and super easy to prep!

The final set will have 12 customizeable sight words on the right-facing dinosaurs, and the same 12 sight words on the left-facing dinosaurs.

How to Prep

To begin, you will type your custom words in the word generator. You only need to type them once and they will auto-populate onto both sets of dinosaurs – instantly making the pairs for you!

I recommend printing on cardstock for durability and laminating for reuse year after year. Cut apart the dinosaur cards and you are all set to play!

Want to practive even more words? Simply save your first file and type 12 new words (names, color words, number words). The possibilities are endless!

How to Play

My kids and I start by laying out one set of dinosaur cards that are all facing the same direction and reading the words together.

Then, we place the other 12 dinosaur cards in a pile.

We pull one dinosaur card at a time, read the sight word, and look for its match, or “best friend,” as my students like to call it!

We continue matching up the sight word dinosaurs until they all make a pair. Such simple, yet engaging, sight word fun your kids will love!
