Parking Lot Sight Word Game

Hi everyone! This is Allison from Climbing the Monkey Bars and I am so excited to be blogging for Simply Centers.

About ten years ago I went to a district workshop about phonemic awareness. At the workshop, we also discussed sight word vocabulary and the presenter showed us a really clever game to review sight word vocabulary. It is called Sight Word Parking Lot and it is a great game to use for small group work, centers, literacy stations, daily five work work, etc.

You can easily make one with a piece of paper and a marker. You make parking spaces on the sheet and write a different sight word in each parking spot. Then, you give each child in the small group a matchbox car. On each turn, you say a sight word and they drive their car into that parking space. Easy and fun!

Here is a picture of a board with a car:

 I created five boards with ten words on each. I chose fifty of the most common sight words for kindergarten. Stop by my blog to pick up your own set!
