The best thing about this FREE printable is… it’s EDITABLE!
The possibilities are endless with an editable activity. You can choose to use spring themed words, spelling words, high-frequency words, Dolch words, sight words – the list goes on and on!
I am so excited for you to use this with your students and I have a few variations to share with you!
Seek a Sight Word and Color Activity
This sight word activity is a fun and easy-prep literacy center! Just download the editable file and type in your word list.
Print, laminate, and cut apart the flower words. Place the Seek a Sight Word recording sheet in your literacy center with crayons and the sight word flowers.
Students will take a flower from the pile, read it, and find/color it on the recording sheet.
The activity continues until all of the sight word flower cards have been read and colored in on the recording sheet.
Seek a Sight Word and Color Partner Race
This variation is played similarly but in pairs.
Two players share a recording sheet and each pick one color crayon that is their designated color.
Player #1 draws a card, reads the sight word, and finds/colors it on the recording sheet. Player #2 then proceeds as player #1 did.
If a player doesn’t know the sight word, they put the card at the bottom of the pile and miss their turn. The player with the most flowers colored at the end of the game is the winner.
“Read the Room” Seek a Sight Word Activity
I like to scatter the sight word flowers around the classroom for the students to find. Students will use the recording sheet to color in the words as they find them.
If this activity is used in pairs, then partner #1 can hide the words around the classroom and then partner #2 finds them.
Students then take turns and switch so each child has a turn to “hide and seek.”
