Teaching sight words is important – but it can also be tricky! Especially when you have early readers who read SO differently from one another, and you may need 10 different lists just to meet all their levels! (I don’t know about you, but that’s a lot of prep time.) These editable Sight Word Games and Centers are not only a super time-saver for teachers but are super engaging for students. With hands-on fun that works with ANY word list, there are sight word activities for everyone!
Editable Sight Word Games and Centers
These sight word games are a teacher’s dream because they simplify your planning and make learning FUN for your kids. They are non-seasonal so you can use them any time of year!
How to Prep
To prep the games, simply type ANY 18 words into the custom list creator, and it AUTOMATICALLY fills every activity with your chosen sight words in seconds!
Here’s a sneak peek at how easy it is! This is what it looked like when I typed in my own words. I typed them and then POOF!, those words I wanted were on every single game piece!
Let’s take a peek inside at some of the super fun activities included in this pack…
Sight Word Sandwiches
Play “Sight Word Sandwiches” as you match up words and record them on the optional recording sheet.
This activity lets you differentiate for your students as needed. Play a simple matching game or add the recording sheets to a center for added writing practice and accountability.
Everyone loves gumballs! Build sight words with the gumballs, and then (if you choose to use it) record some words you build on the optional recording sheet.
Sight Word Splat!
Read and build words with “Sight Word Splat!” a fun, paint-themed sight word game. It also includes an optional recording sheet.
Then, grab some colorful crayons to trace over your sight words “rainbow writing” style!
Roll and graph your sight words using the included printable die or cut out the included cards and insert them into your favorite pocket dice!
Fill in the Sight Word

Perhaps my favorite part of this pack is the easy-prep sight word mini-books. When you type in your 18 words – 18 mini-books are INSTANTLY created for you!
You simply print, fold twice, and Ta-Da! You have books for your chosen sight words all ready to go.
