Looking for a fun way to practice those sight words with the kids?
Make your own simple sight word game with sight word tic-tac-toe!
To make your own sight word tic-tac-toe game, first draw a large tic-tac-toe board on white paper.
To re-use the game board, I slid ours into a plastic sleeve. Then I used a dry-erase marker to write one CVC word in each square. (You could also do sight words or even math problems!)
Next you will need some cute markers! I used construction paper to cut out black bats and orange pumpkins for our markers. I recommend making 5 of each; you want to have plenty for any ties you might have!
To play sight word tic-tac-toe:
Players take turns reading the words. If they get the word correct, they get to put a marker in the square. If they don’t read it correctly, they miss their turn and the other player gets to go.
The first player to have three of their markers in a row wins!
You could easily personalize the game using markers like princess pictures or cars (whatever your child is in to).
Since it is near Halloween, we went with the Halloween theme!
