⭐️ There are no sight words included in this resource. You will need to use the editable page to add your own sight words. You will type the sight words once for each game and they will auto-populate for you. Please note that you will need to open the file in Adobe to edit. You will be unable to edit when viewing the file in your web browser.
The directions for each game stay the same, so you can explain once and just switch out the games.
Students will each need a game piece such as a mini eraser or plastic cube for this activity. They will also need a plastic spinner or a paperclip and pencil to make a spinner.
Students will start on the first space in the upper left corner of the game board. They will spin the spinner and identify the sight word they spun. They will identify the sight words on the trail and move their game piece to the nearest sight word that corresponds to the one that they spun. The gray shaded themed spaces are free spaces.
The first player to make it all the way around to the last space on the game board is the winner. To win the game, the player must spin the final word shown in the last space on the game board.
