Make practicing sight words feel magical with this engaging and editable unicorn sight word matching game! It’s a perfect literacy center for Kindergarten, 1st, and even 2nd graders who are working on building up their sight word fluency.
Unicorn Sight Word Matching Game
To get this game ready, I typed the sight words I wanted my kids to work on into the editable file, and then printed out the pieces to laminate.
The download includes the Dolch pre-primer words pre-populated in there for easy printing if you need some ready to go words, but they can easily be switched out to words of your own choosing at the click of a button!
After laminating, I cut apart the unicorns and rainbows on the solid black lines so that I had the pieces all set to play a matching game with a group of students.
This game works with as few or as many words as you like, and since it is editable, you can easily turn it into an ABC matching game, a name matching game, or anything you need!
I worked with a small group on a handful of words. We started by spreading out the rainbows face up to see the words.
We then picked up unicorns and read the sight words, looking for their matching rainbow. We would then read the words again when we found the rainbow, getting more exposure and practice with the words.
We kept reading words and placing them with their matches until all the pairs had been found!
