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. Practice doesn’t have to be boring though! This fun groundhog sight word matching game is an engaging activity that is perfect for anytime of year, but especially near Groundhog Day for some themed learning!
This game is super simple to prepare. All you need are the printed cards – literally, that’s it!
After printing the cards, I recommend laminating them to keep them sturdy, especially if you are using them in a classroom for repeated use.
This sight word game is EDITABLE – that means you can type in any words you want!
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.
One set of cards is green and the other is blue. Pick one card, read the sight word, and then find it’s match!
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!
