Sight Words Four Square

By Isabel Albl

The purpose for this activity is to practice sight-word recognition.


1. Write the four target sight words separate in four pieces of paper.

2. Hang the four sight words papers. Each of them in a corner of the classroom.

3. Have all the students to stand next to one of the sights words. Students can move from one sight word to another one if they want.

4. Call one sight word. All the students standing next to that sight word sit and are out of the game. Keep calling sight words until there is just one student standing.


Students practice recognition and fluency. All the class gets to play. Students keep active while playing.
