Do your kiddos ever get tired of the same ole’ literacy centers? But you want to keep them similar so you don’t have to explain things over and over again? In my 2nd year of teaching, I started doing the same 5 basic literacy centers with the same focus every week, just different theme/content. For example, I would have these 5 centers:
- Sight Words
- Word Work
- Integrated SS/Science
I started making themed game centers that I could easily implement because my kids already knew how to play, but I would keep them excited each time with a fresh look! This Editable Sight Word Pumpkin Game is a great example of getting my kids “used to” a center, and then just changing out the theme. Fall is right around the corner, and we know what that means! PUMPKINS! Check out this FREEBIE below.
What kid doesn’t love a game? This Sight Word Game is the perfect way to sneak in some sight word review while making it interactive and fun!
The best part is that you can either use the words I have already provided, or plug in your own sight word list.
There are 3 ways to play the game. After you plug in your sight words on the game board, they will autofill on this Roll, Read, Spell, Find, and Write Recording Sheet:
Or you can pair students up and let them take turns rolling the dice and recording the words they land on in this 2 Player Roll and Write.
The last way to play is your basic Roll and Write. Students roll a dice and record the words they land on.
Are your students ready to bring on Fall with this fun game?!? I also have this cute Turkey version if your students get hooked!
