I’m always looking for new ways for students to practice their sight words. As you know, games are my thing and are my favorite way of having students practice different things they are learning. My favorite part is that when they play a game, they don’t even realize they are learning and practicing things that they have been taught.
So today, I’m sharing a Honey Bee Sight Word Game to help your students practice their pre-primer sight words.
To play the game, all you need to do is download the printable at the bottom of the post. Cut out all of the squares and laminate so you can play the game over and over again. You will also need some kind of container to put the cards in. I used a tin bucket I had on hand, but anything you have will work.
This game can be played with one student or many. You will put all of the cards into the container and shake them up. Have a student pull out a card, look at it, and read the sight word. If they cannot read the word help tell them what the word is and put the card back into the container. If they got the word correct and if they are playing alone, choose another card and repeat. And if you are playing with other students, move to the next person to take a turn.
There are some cards that have a pot of honey on them. If that card gets pulled, the player gets to take another turn.
There are also some cards that say BZZZ! If a student chooses a BZZZ! card, they say BZZZ! and put all of their sight word cards back in the container and it’s the next players’ turn or they can start over again if playing alone. Keep playing until all of the words have been read.
