When it comes reading, sight words and CVC words are some of the first words kids learn to read.
Help your beginning reader work on those CVC and sight words with this easy to set up apple-themed sight word game! It may become your new favorite way to work on sight words at home.
This simple activity is fun if you are doing an apple unit full of fun apple activities for kids. It would also work as a stand alone sight word game.
Apple-themed sight word scavenger hunt
To create the “apples” for our CVC word game I used some of the plastic balls we had left from the little ball pit we had when the kids were younger.
Red, yellow, and green balls make great “apples.” On each of these I wrote a CVC word with “a” as the vowel in the middle. (This week we are working on the short “a” sound.) You can use any CVC words (consonant-vowel-consonant) or sight words your child needs to work on.

To play the game hide your apples around the house, much like an Easter egg hunt.
Allow your child to hunt for and collect the apples. In order to keep their apples they must correctly read the word written on each apple. How many apples can they collect and keep?
