Sight Word Matching Game

Play a Sight Word Matching Game

Playing “Memory” with Sight Words is a great way to help children interact with their sight words! To keep the game manageable, don’t start with an entire table covered with sight word cards. Start with 3 pairs, then work your way up to more. When you see your child start to get frustrated, use less pairs. The goal is to have your child interact with the words, recognize the words, and have fun. When they get frustrated, the game is no longer fun, and they won’t get as much learning out of it. Plus, they won’t want to play in the future.

To play the Sight Word Matching game, you need to print up duplicates of the Free Sight Word Printable Flashcards. Instead of making it a “Me vs. You” game, I paired up with my Kindergartener to help him. He got to turn over two cards, we identified the words, then turned them back over if they didn’t match. If they did match, we put them in a pile next to him. Once he got all 3 pairs, I put down three more pairs. You could play Sight Word Memory as a two-player game, where each person tries to find the most pairs, but I decided that I wanted only one goal when playing this game: have fun learning sight words. I didn’t want that goal to compete with other lessons like taking turns and sportsmanship. Those are valuable lessons, but not ones I wanted to focus on for this exercise.
