Tic-Tac-Toe Sight Words

What You Need:

The Activity:

This is such a fun way to teach sight words especially if your child is bored of Flash Cards. I saw a teacher do this with her students and I loved it! This works great with HOMEWORK!!!!

This is a 2 player game. Each player picks a color from the daubers. The use of daubers help young ones strengthen the grasp and when held with the fingers can assist in developing the O shape between the thumb and index finger. You then draw a Tic Tac Toe Grid on a blank piece of paper (i.e. this will create 9 boxes) and write one sight word in each box.

Play Tic Tac Toe however before marking your box you must read the sight word that is in that box…Voila! Tic Tac Toe!

My mind of course always races to adapt activities to meet different goals especially when I come across a great new game like this one. I wanted to try and make this game re-useable (I hate wasting so much paper) and also work on handwriting at the same time. So here is my adaptation:

You Will Need:

  • Paper with Tic Tac Toe grid drawn on it
  • Plastic Sheet Protectors
  • 2 different colored dry erase markers
Available for purchase here on MissMancy’s Shop

The Activity:

Draw a Tic Tac Toe Grid on a blank piece of paper (i.e. this will create 9 boxes) and write one sight word in each box with a light colored marker. Place the paper in the sheet protector. Play Tic-Tac-Toe however each player has to CIRCLE the sight word, READ it and TRACE it! When you’re done just wipe it off and use it again!
