Today is a great day to practice your sight words! We are going to play a game called SIGHT WORD SLAP!
How to Play:
It seems like a simple game, but it’s really a fun way to practice your sight words.
Take the words off your ring of cards.
Quickly shuffle and deal the cards into two piles. Each player gets one pile of cards. At the same time, each player flips over a card. The first person who reads the card correctly and slaps it gets both cards. Continue until there is no more pile of cards.
Today we are going to finish up our “Rhyming Week” with a new game.
Rhyme Challenge: Whether you are in the car, taking a walk, or relaxing at home, Rhyme Challenge is an easy game that requires no set-up, clean-up, or materials whatsoever.
For Rhyme Challenge, one person chooses a word and says, I challenge you to think of as many rhymes as you can for “cat” (or any word). And the next player says as many words as he can that rhyme with that word. Both players keep count. I try to model saying the given word with the rhyming word so my little ones stay on track with rhymes (Cat, bat. Cat, hat. Cat, mat. . . ), but this isn’t necessary.
Having one person choose a word then take turns saying just one rhyming word, one right after the other.
Speed rounds,” where we yell out rhyming words as fast as we can. Or, you can do “slow rounds” – it really depends on the day.
Let’s play a game of ‘I Spy Rhyme’. It’s just like I spy but with a rhyme twist! The person who is it would say, “I spy something that rhymes with hawk.” The answer being; chalk. Once children get that they have to rhyme it out before they say it, it is so much fun!
Rhyming Game #2
Use this I Spy board below. Pick an object on the board and see how many rhyming words you can make.
