Sight words is a common term used in early reading instruction that typically refers to a set of about 100 words that keep reappearing in text. Some examples of sight words include, “Who, the, he, were, does, me, be” etc. Learning Resources offers a fun way to learn and practice these words. Their Pop for Sight Words Game engages children with colorful popcorn graphics and competitive gameplay. According to the description, “Students will gobble up handfuls of fun as they recognize and read aloud sight words.”
Features of the Pop for Sight Words Game are:
- Improves fluency as children pick word cards from the popcorn box and keep all the words they can read correctly
- Includes 100 die-cut popcorn cards — 92 sight words and 8 POP cards that put all your word cards back into the carton
- Supports a variety of early literacy activities
- For 2-4 players ages 5 and up!
