I offer you a game... I play this with my 6 year old son and my first grade students. It was orginally called OH NO! The game OH NO! came from my teacher friend Mer. Where she got .... who knows?

I call this little variation:
Wild About Reading 
Wild about Sight Words

Here is how to play: Using the download, write out the sight words that are a struggle
or sight words from your current list.

Place cards in a container, and take turns drawing and reading the cards.
I place cards from the old lists into the container so that he stays sharp on those too.
His teacher provides cards for the kids. Thanks Mrs W!
If you can read the card(s), then you keep them. Here are our two piles.
Follow directions on the “Character” cards and have fun!  When the character card says “take”, then you take that number from the container and try to read them. You keep what you can read.  If it says “put back”, you must put 2 cards back into the container.
The person with the most cards wins!
Jackson loves this game. We play it about once every two weeks.

This also works for phonics sounds.
 I have provided diagraphs and blends in the download.
