    Practice the sightwords with games:

    • BANG! = print the word cards, then add in at least 4 new cards with the word BANG written on them.  Turn all cards face-down. Take turns choosing a card.  Student must read the card correctly to keep it.  If you draw a BANG card, all your word cards must go back into the pile!
    • Fast-Draw = Place word cards in a stack.  Take turns turning over the top card and placing it on the table.  The person who reads it first (the fastest), gets to pick up the card to keep.
    • Go Fish =  Played like the classic game... print out 2 copies of the word cards, shuffle and play.


    Work on Numbers for Math:

    (We have been working on making groups up to 20, recognizing larger numbers and even adding!)

    • Play Top-It = This is played the same way as the "War" card game; just remove the face cards first, and have your student say which number is larger.
    • Grab and write= Use collections of stones, pennies, or other small objects.  Have your student (or yourself) grab up a handful then write how many they "THINK" are there.  Then count and record the actual amount.
    • Adding = Draw two tens-frames  (a tens-frame looks like a squared-off egg carton with only 10 spaces; two rows of five)  have students draw 2 cards and add those numbers by placing each set in the tens frames.
