I agree that sight words wouldn't fall under the category of phonics, but if that is what you are working on, I have a couple of suggestions.

1. Check out Jan Richardson's book, "The Next Step Forward in Guided Reading". When you buy the book, you get access to videos that show lots of different ways to teach reading. I was just watching a video where she played a game called, "What's missing?" She spelled the word on a magnetic board with magnetic letters, told the kids to take a good look, and then took a letter away and asked what was missing. Then she repeated with other letters, and sometimes took 2 or 3 letters away. The kids tell what's missing, and then write the word on their whiteboards.

2. I always have my students take home flash cards and keep them by the TV. When they are watching TV, they can work on sight words during commercials.
