Roll A Word Game to Build Sight Word Knowledge

click picture   


Here is a game I created as a literacy station. These are soft cubes that have clear pockets to put cards in. They can be used for so many things. The possibilities are endless!  This is a game where kids work with a partner and record the word that shows "face-up" in the appropriate column by coloring the bar in. Each time the word comes up they read it and record it on their chart. Once they reach the top with a word the game is over and they count up their totals. They could also write the word in each box.The color words just make it more interesting.Our kids love to graph. If you click on the photo you will find the site where you can learn more about theseor head over to that shopping site like no other- AMAZON!

LOVE this idea! Just ordered my set of cubes on amazon. Can you tell me what clipart you used for the bear sight word cards? They are so cute!
Thanks so much,

Hi Kay,
Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. This bear is from djinkers: Top of the Class CD. Cute, huh?
My whole kinder team loves this activity and I taught it to my little ones today. They loved it and could not wait to play with a partner. I hope you will follow me. I have some other freebies coming up!

Fran,

Do you have the bear cards for download or is it just the recording sheets? I have the top of the class CD and can make my own, but I was not sure if I was missing them on the post. Thanks!!

I never put them on the blog but a ton of people want them so check back. I have the file at school.
Thanks for featuring me on your blog.

Yes I am like April I would love the cards but I don't have the clipart to make them. I really wanted to do this with my RTI students.

I love the activity, I would like to get a copy fo the clip art if possible. I can't believe how creative you are:)

You gave me a great idea. Numbers could be put on the dice instead, or sets, or number words and a graph could be created to correspond to those rolls of the dice. Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful ideas!

Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas. The word graph gave me an idea. The same type of graph could be done with dice and numbers, number words, or sets.

We use these for every set of words! They love it. I created a table on the computer and change up some clipart for the season/theme. I use foam blocks, add stickers to each side with the word, and put them in those small plastic Gerber bins. Students then write the word in the chart each time they roll it and color it after! More writing practice yay! (: They definitely love it!
