Heart Match Valentine Sight Words Game


Learning to read words by sight is a big deal for early readers and paves the way for continued reading success. Before kids confidently read sight words as individual words in content, or next to unrelated words, it can be very helpful to have them practice matching up words that are the same. This builds confidence and recognition of the sight words in a fun way. This free Heart Match Valentine Sight Words Game is EDITABLE so you can use it with any words you wish!

*Pair with our Valentine’s Day Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!

This free editable Heart Match Valentine Sight Words Game is perfect for small groups and literacy centers in Kindergarten!

Heart Match Valentine Sight Words Game

This heart sight word match is super easy to set up, and what I love most is that I can use it with any sight words my students need to practice.

I simply type in 12 sight words that we are working on and then poof! – they automatically populate onto the hearts for me.

You can use it with sight words as I did, but truthfully, you could use it with letters, math facts, high-frequency words – whatever you like!

This sight word game is editable so you can fill the hearts with any words that you want.

How to Play

I printed the heart cards on cardstock and laminated them for durability. Then I cut them apart and we were ready to play!

When we played in a small group we first spread out the red hearts on the table. Then we read all 12 sight words together.

Next, we took turns picking up a pink heart and looking for its red heart match. We read the sight words again as we paired them up.

Since I use this activity in small groups, I like to make a copy of this sight word game for one group and save it to my computer, and then type in new words to make a completely different set for a different group of students.

In this sight word game, students match the red sight word hearts with the pink sight word hearts.

This sight word game is also an excellent activity to add to Valentine’s Day literacy centers or to use for early finishers – so many possibilities!
