Sight Word Games!
My tpt store is up and running, and I've added a few things! A sight word freebie went up yesterday, and today I've added another sight word game to the shop! 

My kids get to school anywhere between 7:00 and 7:25 so this is perfect for those early birds who get to school 20-25 minutes before everyone else. They complete their morning work and have a choice of reading or word games. Since Bang is their hands-down favorite word game, I knew I had to create some new versions.

My kiddos love to play Bang. This game needs no teacher guidance and reinforces those sight words kids can't see enough! I made my own version of Bang using the 100 most common sight words. I start in the fall with the easiest words and add words when the time is right. If you are unfamiliar with Bang, the instructions are listed on my tpt page and included in my new packet.  
I've called my game, "Traffic Jam" 

You'll find it here!
