Ideas for Using Editable Sight Word Cards

Matching/Memory Game - Use one set of cards (as many cards as you think are appropriate for your students) to play a matching/memory game. Set all cards face down in neat rows. Take turns flipping over two cards at a time.  

A match will be the same sight word and the student who found the match will need to read the words correctly. The player with the most matches wins. For 2-4 players.

Go Fish – Use one set of cards (as many cards as you think are appropriate for your students.) Each player gets 5 cards to hold in his/her hand. The rest are put in a pile.  

If they have any matches, they set them down in front of them.  They draw more cards to replace the matches so they always have 5 cards in their hand. Take turns asking each other for the match to a card in their hand.  For example, “Do you have want?” 

The other player checks his/her cards to see if they have want to match. If they have the card, they give it to the other player.  If not, say go fish and draw from the pile. Player with the most matches at the end of the game wins. For 2-4 players.

Flash cards – copy and cut the cards horizontally. Fold on the vertical line in the center and glue/laminate to make the cards two sided.
