A Fun Sight Word Game: Treasure Hunt!

April 17, 2019

I am always on the hunt for fun, new games and activities to practice sight words. This ode to the game, Battleship, is such a great way to keep students engaged while learning or reviewing sight words.

The goal of the game is to the be first to find the other player’s buried treasure! Students will want to play this sight word game over and over and over!


See how to play, Sight Word Treasure Hunt, below:


If you don’t know already, I have a weekly game series over on my YouTube channel called, “Susan’s Sunday Spotlight.” This is where I share a new game every single week that you can take and use in your classroom right away! Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you can see every new activity!


You can easily grab some index cards and make these sight word cards yourself, but in case you want to have some easy, print & go cards, I compiled cards for each of the follow lists. Dolch (K-2) and Fry sight words (1-300). I also made an editable sheet for you to type in your own words.


You can see all those below:


Pin to remember:This fun sight word game has kindergarten, first, and second grade students practicing reading and identifying their sight words! In this activity, students pair up and try to be the first to find the other's buried treasure. Head over to the post to see how to play!

  • What a great idea! This would be terrific for volunteers out there who go into classrooms to help out and want to up their impact by making this game and playing it with the students. Donating that game would really assist the busy teacher. Thanks!
