If you go to kellyskindergarten.com she has sight word games to print and you can change the words, I believe to fit yours.

Keep it simple such as:
1. Sight word memory
2. Bang!
3. Flash card rings and recording sheets of the words they find while reading STAR books
4. Rainbow writing

This week my kids are looking for tiny sight words with a magnifying lens. They find the word and write it on a recording sheet. They love it! There is really nothing to it. I typed words in 8 font type. It is so simple...I will change the words after we introduce more.

I love the ideas from PPs. I will definitely try those. Here's one of my ideas to share with you all...Set out a ring of high-frequency words, a ball of playdough, a whiteboard, marker and placemat. The child should roll out a "snake" with the playdough on a plasitc placemat (or tray) and then form a high-frequency word. They then fill the whiteboard with that word. Kids love playdough and this gives it a purpose and is a very multi-sensory approach to learning these words!

Here's a few games/activities my kinders love:

** Making the sight words using wikki stix (super easy to set up & clean up too)
** "Roll, Say, Keep"
I have a game board that has six boxes. In the corner of each box is a pic of a domino (1-6.) All our sight words are on small cards and put into a can. At the beg of game, the children (2 players) take out three cards each and put them on the gameboard. Then they take turns rolling the die and reading the word on the number they rolled. If they can read it, they keep it and pull another word from the can to replace it. If they can't read it, it's their partners turn. At first, I put a lot of cards with the same words on them in the can for the repeated practice. Then I just replace them with our new words.
** Read & Write the room - they can wear funny glasses and they look around the room for sight words to copy down on recording sheets
** Matching letter tiles, magnetic letters, or letter beads to the sight words that are written on index cards.
** Unscramble the sight words in a pocket chart.
** Stringing letter beads onto plastic yarn to make sight words.
** Rainbow write each sight word.
** ZAP! Each sight word is on a popsicle stick with 5 popsicle sticks that say ZAP! Two children take turns pulling a stick and reading the word. If they pull ZAP! they put all their sticks back in the can.
** Stamp out the sight words using alphabet stampers.

I have lots of other store bought games but it seems that the ones I put together myself are the kids faves each year.
