Race Car Sight Word Game
We’ve recently been playing lots of sight word games. I love editable games because it makes it easy to change up the words whenever you need to. And you don’t just have to use sight words. You can use spelling words, words in foreign languages and more!
The kids will have a blast while racing and reading sight words. Plus, there is a recording sheet that gives them a chance to also write the words as they land on them.
It’s makes learning sight words much more fun and exciting than just using flash cards or worksheets.

How to Play the Race and Read Sight Word Game
Children will place the cars in front of the first word on the game board. They will spin the spinner and move that many spaces on the board.
Then they will read the word they landed on out loud and write it on their recording sheet.
The next player repeats the steps above.
This continues until the first player crosses over the finish line. *My son likes to play with the rule that the last spin has to land you directly on the last word. So if you are one space away from the last word, you have to spin a 1 to win. Two spaces away and you need to spin a 2 and so on.
There is enough space on the recording sheet for players to play more than one round of the game. This works out perfectly since the game moves pretty quickly.
I would recommend only playing it in pairs because there isn’t a ton of room on the game board for more than two cars. If you use mini erasers, this is less of an issue.
I hope your kids have a blast playing this race and read sight word game!
