Continuing with my popular “UNO” style game cards, I created a few sight words games this past week. I now have the Dolch word sets for PreK, Kindergarten and first grade available at my store on Teacher’s Pay Teachers.
These card sets are great for students who need to practice their sight words! As a student plays a card, they must say the sight word that’s on the card.
How to play “ONE”:
All the rules are the same except that players change suit by laying down a card with the same sight word instead of numbers 1-9.
The green “run” card is the face-up card. As a player, I may play a card with the same sight word (i.e. another “run” card) or a card with the same color (green).
Of course, like UNO™, I can also play one of the special cards like “Skip”, “Reverse”, “Draw Two”, “Draw Four” and “Wild”. After all, the special cards are what make the game fun, right?

Here’s an example of what the card sets look like when they’re printed and cut out:
I suggest printing the cards on white cardstock (front & back) and then laminating. That way, the cards won’t be see-through and you’ll be able to use them over and over again!
What a great idea! We’ve been having some difficulty with sight words, and I think this would be very helpful.
By the way—good tip on laminating. Our rule is, if it’s made of paper and it gets used more than once, it gets laminated!
