Sight Word Jenga!

Since starting the Daily Five I've been on the hunt for some cute game ideas that I could easily adjust to make into a sight word review game.  Then I had a brilliant idea (that I'm sure is 'old news' to most of you) to change plain old Jenga to Sight Word Jenga!  
It's SOOOO easy.  All I did was write sight words on both sides of the Jenga blocks.  The kids play the same way, however, when they pull out the Jenga block they have to say the sight word.  They earn a point each time they say the word correctly.  The player with the most points WINS!  So fun and my kids LOVE it!  I have a worksheet that I created to go with it so the kiddos are able to keep score, however, I'm still trying to figure out the whole 'google docs' and 'scribd' thing (yes, I know I'm young and should know how to work the technology, but honestly, I'm struggling ) :(
Will have it posted, hopefully, SOON!

Happy Friday!

  4. Super idea! And it couldn't be easier to set up! LOVE it


  5. Here's another cute idea for making words/sight words/creating sentences. My kids LOVE it.

    Don't be afraid of the title...the blog is about messy arts and crafts. LOL!

  6. I never thought of this for sight words... I've done it with numbers and addition and colors... so THANKS for sharing! Also, I'd love to follow you on Scribd if you ever decide to use them. On my blog I posted a video on how to use scribd and blogger together if you are interested.

  7. Shannon,

    Thanks for the tips! Love your sight as well!!
    I'll get busy with figuring out Scribd and will let you know when I get things up and running!

    I appreciate all the love and support!

  13. You could take this a step further with dry erase boards/markers. The student who pulls the word reads it correctly and gets a point. If the other students spell it correctly on their boards, they also get a point!
