Editable Spring Sight Word Game
This activity is suitable for Pre-K to first grade students. You can use this in your homeschool or traditional classroom setting.
Differentiate learning with this editable printable – you can choose any 15 words that you’d like your students to focus on.
You simply type them on the custom word generator page – and it will auto-populate the flower words and recording sheet for you!
Print different word lists for small groups. You can focus on sets of words for each group of kiddos!
Let’s get started!
- Seek a Sight Word Coloring Page (at the end of the post)
- 15 Sight Word Flowers (at the end of the post)
- Springtime candy or spring colored manipulatives (optional in place of crayons)
- dry erase pockets if you are making the pages reusable
How to Use this Activity
The best thing about this FREE printable is…it’s EDITABLE!
The possibilities are endless with an editable activity. You can choose to use spring themed words, spelling words, High-Frequency Words, Dolch Words, Sight Words and the list goes on!
I am so excited for you to use this with your students and I have a few variations to share with you.
Tip: Use spring colored candies or spring themed manipulatives to “cover up” the flowers on the recording sheet instead of using crayons to make it reusable! Just slide the pages into a dry erase pocket or sheet protector!
Seek a Sight Word and Color
This would make for an easy-prep center activity. Just download the editable file and type in your word list.
Print, laminate, and cut apart the flower words. Place the Seek a Sight Word Coloring page in your literacy center with crayons and Sight Word Flowers.
Students will take a flower from the pile, read it, and find it on the recording sheet by coloring it in.
The activity continues until all of the sight word flower cards have been read and colored in on the recording sheet.
Seek a Sight Word and Color Partner Race
This variation is played similarly but in pairs.
Two players share a recording sheet and each pick one color crayon that is their designated color.
Player #1 draws a card, reads the sight word and finds it on the recording sheet and colors in the flower. Player #2 then proceeds as player #1 did.
If a player doesn’t know the sight word, they must put the card at the bottom of the pile and they miss their turn. The player with the most flowers colored at the end of the game is the winner.
Read the Room Seek a Sight Word
Children scatter the sight words around the classroom either alone or with a partner. Students will use the recording sheet to color in the words as they find them around the classroom.
If this activity is used in pairs, then one child can hide the words around the classroom while his/her partner then finds them.
Students then take turns and switch so each child has a turn to hide and seek.
