Learning sight words is a huge part of learning to read. You can make it fun with games and activities that make learning feel like playing. This turkey sight word game is a fun game to play in the fall, and my kids always love dice games!
*Pair this with our Fall Math and Literacy Centers for even more learning fun!
Turkey Sight Words Game
This game is super easy to prepare, especially if you are playing with pocket dice. Then, you just cut out the sight word cards you are using and slide them right in!
There is also a paper die included that you can fold and put together easily with tape, it just takes a few more minutes.
If you don’t have differentiated instruction cubes – I HIGHLY recommend them. They are awesome!
Print off the word set you are using, along with the matching recording sheet (enough for each child) and you are ready to play.
There are 20 words included in this printable game (4 games with 5 words each). They are taken from the Dolch Pre-Primer list and are words appropriate for kindergarten and any beginning reader.
The words included are: the, said, and, my, to, big, can, for, go, jump, in, is, it, look, me, little, see, you, play, one.
*An editable version where you can add any words you want can be found in our fall math and literacy centers.
My kids always love dice games, and this one is no exception! The goal is to see which word gets to the top first. So, not only are kids getting some exposure to sight words, but handwriting, spelling, and graphing too!
They rolled the die, wrote the word in its correct column, and rolled again. If they rolled a turkey, they could choose any word they liked.
You can have kids play alone and have different versions available in a literacy center, or you can play in a small group. In a small group, we each take turns rolling the die, and then we all record that word on our recording sheet, talking about our predictions for the “winning word.”
