Practicing sight words in the primary grades is vitally important when learning how to read. To help students review and learn new sight words, I am always on the lookout for new, fun games! This game, “Sight Word SPLASH!” is one we played a lot last year in my kindergarten and first grade small groups and I wanted to take a minute to share it with you!
This small group game is easy to set up! All you need is:
– a paper with a pond drawn on it
– index cards
The index cards will have anywhere from 20-40 sight words you have been practicing. Within the pile you will add three “special cards.” The SPLASH card (with an optional frog on it), a skip turn card, and a reverse card. Once you quickly make the materials, playing the game is super simple. Just watch my video below to see how to play:

I hope you like this simple and fun sight word game. What are some of your favorite ways to practice sight words?!
