Insightful Games!

InSIGHTful Games!

 If you don't know already, I love to pin! At night when I can't sleep I will pin until I get sleepy.

I felt a little guilty pinning all these things for my Kindergartner but hadn't made him anything.  I decided I was going to create something that he really is into lately, sight word game.  There are plenty of wonderful ideas from Pinterest and are pinned and planned on creating them....but I used my own creativity to make this for my little guy.  I was going to cut tag cards but then I noticed I found another set of playing cards of Disney Go Fish & Snap that came in a two pack at the Dollar Store.  * I thought instead of going through the trouble of cutting the cards and then being super anal annoyed with different sizes to my cards and/or them not being laminated (a teacher's friend- but once they are laminated then you have to cut them out which may never happen...I'm speaking the truth my fellow educators.)
So I went with the cards that were already colorful and all it needed was my handy Sharpie and mommy writing the words.  Matthew's teacher sends home,on a binder clip, all the words they have studied, so I just used those words.

Only 3 easy steps to create these InSIGHTful Games:

  1. I wrote all the words down onto card stock so that we can make variations to the game at a later time.  I like using the cards because younger siblings, or children that aren't familiar with all the sight words could rely on the pictures to help with their game! :) 

  2. I matched up all the characters, which were 4 in each set. 

  3. I wrote the words twice on the matching card.

 The FUN step is making your game alive with your child, children, or students!
We were playing Sight Word Snap! 
 My favorite thing is creating something for all the LOVES in my life and them truly enjoying it!
