Sight words make up nearly half of the words your child will encounter, so it is so important to practice them often and read them fluently. Sight word activities don’t have to be boring though! This fun groundhog sight word matching game is an engaging activity that is perfect for any time of year, but especially near Groundhog Day for some themed learning!

Groundhog Sight Word Matching Game
This groundhog sight word matching game is perfect for any Pre-K or Kindergarten classroom. I know that I have kids working on various sight words. Some kids need words that other kids don’t, so I love being able to quickly change the words while still allowing my kids to play the same game as their peers!
How to Prep
This activity is super simple to prepare. All you need are the printed cards – literally, that’s it!
Start by typing in your preferred sight words into the printable (download below). This sight word game is EDITABLE – that means you can type in any words you want!
Next, print and cut apart the cards and you have a super fun matching game!
After printing the cards, I recommend laminating them to keep them sturdy, especially if you are using them in a classroom for repeated use.

Time to Play
One set of cards is green and the other is blue. I like to lay out one set on a table so the students can see all of the sight words. I put the other set in a small grab bag or basket for the kids to draw out of.
The students will pick one card from the small bag or basket, read the sight word, and then find its match from the cards on the table!
Having to read a word, then find it and read it again helps kids put the word to memory.
You could also pick a few sight words at a time, turn them over, and play it as a memory game!
