Just in time for the summer Olympic games, we found this super fun sight word soccer game created by Malia over at Playdough To Plato and thought it would a perfect fit! It will get your kiddos excited about the games and help them review sight words using a learning strategy known as "spell, cover, check" - i.e. students first identify the sight word, saying as well as spelling it, then cover the word and try to spell it from memory.

Supplies You'll Need

  • Soccer field and sigh word soccer ball printables {available for FREE over at Playdough To Plato}
  • Recycled bottle caps
  • Craft glue
  • Poster board or tag board

[NOTE: We suggest attaching the soccer field printable to a scrap piece of poster or tag board and running it through the laminator to reduce wear and tear.]

Not only does this game take literacy skills, in order to score points, students must also be able to aim/control the sight word soccer balls to make goals! It looks like tons of fun and will totally get them in the mood to watch the Olympics!
