Play to Learn: Erase the Sight Word Game

Even though it's summer, I remain focused on keeping the learning alive & active in our home. As always, I try to keep things fun and easy so that the Lil Divas want to participate.  One of my favorite things to do is to make whatever we are learning - a game. My girls love to play games so I can always entice them this way, no matter what it is. 

Here's a super simple game we have been playing to practice sight words -

What I love about this game is the minimal set-up and materials required. You can use a dry erase board like we do or use a chalk board or magnetic doodle pad - whatever you have handy.

How to Play:
1. Choose your target sight words, spelling words, vocabulary words, etc and write them on your board/pad. We use this to practice sight words and spelling so I like to write each word twice - once with the correct spelling and a second time with an incorrect spelling. 


2. To play I call out a word and the Lil Diva has to erase the correctly spelled sight word.


3. Continue until all words have been called out.


This is such an easy game to set-up and play and it is a great way to have a quick review. The Lil Divas  are always excited to play with dry erase boards and markers and by turning this into a game it becomes fun versus being just an ordinary/boring review. 

What learning games do you play with dry erase boards, chalkboards or magnetic doodle pads? They are such fabulous learning tools/aids!

    1. It is so important to do, isn't it! It doesn't have to be complicated either but the more active they remain in learning over the summer, the better it is for them. :) Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderful summer.

  2. Another way to review sight word is eggy 250 from the outline reading progrom "the Reading Egg". It covers 250 sight words and cost $2.50 though itunes. Give it a try for your girls, I know that my son loves it.

    1. My daughter had a reading eggs account from her school through the year and loved it. She asked to go on there daily. I will have to check out the app. Thanks so much for sharing that with me.
