Are your little learners working on learning their sight words? They’ll have a fun time practicing with this Sunshine Sight Word Memory Game!
Sight words are those words that our students will see over and over in print. They are sometimes called high-frequency words, service words, or even snap words. Because you should know them in a snap!
This Sunshine Sight Word Memory Game uses Dolch Pre-primer words.

To get the game ready to play, you’ll first want to download and print the game. You can download it near the bottom of the post by clicking the large green button. After printing, I glued each page onto a piece of yellow cardstock. The cardstock is optional, but this will help the game be more durable and will last longer. You can also laminate them to help last even longer. Last, cut out each of the sight word cards and you’re ready to play.
To play the memory game, start by choosing which words you want the students to review. Maybe they’re just starting to learn a few words so you start with 6 words. Place all 6 of those word cards plus their matches face down randomly./mixed up.
Have the student choose a card to turn over, and then read the card. If they can read the sight word, have can choose another card to flip over to see if they have a match. If they don’t read the word correctly, review the word with them and have them turn it back over and it’s the next player’s turn.
If they do get a match, have them set the cards in front of them and they get to go again. Continue this until all of the cards have been turned over and matched. The player with the most matches at the end is the winner.
To store the game away for next time, we use clear photo 4×6 boxes. It keeps everything nice and in one spot ready to just grab and play for next time.
