Sight Words Memory Game

Oliver doesn’t like studying very much. I don’t like pushing him very much.

When we flew to LA last year, O was given an on-flight gift- including a deck of playing cards. I took inspiration from there and helped O came up with a way to remember his sight words:

Basically I wrote all the words he’s supposed to remember on slips of white paper cut out. Each word has two cards. The other side is blank. Shuffle the cards before playing, then spread out, blank side up.

Each player takes turn to flip over two cards, reading the words out loud. If the words don’t match, flip back. If they match, like below:

The player can keep the cards and do the action stated to gain bonus points.

O picked up the game very quickly and even now, he will ask to play it once in a while. Do try it!
