Sidewalk Chalk Sight Word Fun!

Items you will need to play this game: Sidewalk chalk, marker or sharpie, and note cards(3×5 cards)

I found this idea on Pinterest. You can find so many great ideas there!

Setting up the game: First, select 10 sight words that your child has been practicing. Some sight words we have been working on are: I, like, me , my, he , she, am, the, and, go, see, look, have, & the. Write one of the selected sight words on each note card. Then, draw circles in chalk on the driveway or sidewalk. Write one of the selected sight words inside each circle. There will be 10 note cards with words and 10 circles with the matching words. Finally, draw a line 3 feet away from the circles. Set the word cards near the starting line facing upwards.
How to Play the Game:
First, have your child review each of the selected sight words using the note cards. Say the words together, then have your child read the words. Make a note of which words your child has mastered and which words will need additional practice.
Then, have your child pick up a sight word card. They need to read the card out loud then race to place it on the matching sight word circle. After placing the card in the circle, they run back to the stack of sight word cards and repeat. Follow these directions for all of the cards: Flip the card, read, run, set it on a circle, until all words have been placed.
After playing the game through once, consider adding the element of speed to this sidewalk chalk sight word game. You can set a timer to see how long it takes to read and place all of the words. This is a fun way to get repeated readings of the sight words in – without the game getting boring. When all sight words have been read and matched, consider adding more challenging words to the mix.
