Sight word games can't be beat for teaching early readers that reading is FUN! Sight Word Bingo is an easy-to-learn game for everyone.
1. We've carefully selected 48 words from Fry's list of the first 100 words that all readers need to master.
2. We've arranged them on four different game cards, all printable from our PDF file.
3. We've included a master list of the words we used, plus blank cards from the same word list. The word list and all game cards are in the pdf. You can also use the blank Bingo cards to make more sight word games of your own, featuring slightly more difficult sight words.
4. When playing Bingo, learners have many exposures to the same words. They must listen to the word as it's called out, they must look for it on their game cards, they must distinguish it from other similar sight words on their card, and finally, when they score 5 in a row, they must read the words back to the other players to make certain they've covered the correct words.
