I've got another first grade math game for you. This time its Apple Tree Addition. This games allows your first grader's (or any kid who needs more practice), to work on mastery of addition facts with sums of 10-20. If you like this game you might also want to try the Very Hungry Mouse game.The Very Hungry mouse
is a first grade math game that I made a few weeks ago to let kids practice the addition facts with sums of 2-12.
To play this math game, players take turns drawing an addition facts card.
They then cover the sum with a counter.
The player who covers the most apples by the end of the game wins!

I've got a new sight word game for the Dolch Pre-primer list, Peacock sight words.
In this game kids get to practice their sight words by putting feathers on a peacock. Each feather has a letter on it so students can spell out their sight word.
The words included in this game are the Dolch Pre-primer words minus any one letter and two letter words.
The game will be available for free until Saturday so come and download yours quickly. I'm also planning and making Peacock sight word games for the Primer and First grade lists so stay tuned.
There are many more sight word game ideas on my teaching sight words
page. You can also visit my shop

The spy pigs sight word game is finally complete. In this game you give students one Spy-pig to decorate. Tell students that there are 5 different types of items that they can use to disguise their spy pig: Shirts, pants, sunglasses, hats, or other accessory.
Each of these categories has 20 sight words that students have to learn. So if a student can correctly read all 20 sight words within a minute they can choose something for their spy pig to wear.
If they wish to change what there spy pig is wearing they have to again demonstrate their mastery of the word list.
Or you can have them play this version as a way to practice sight words in a reading center:
Students take turns drawing a card. When they read the word correctly they get to keep the card. If they get three of the same kind (i.e. if they get three cards with sunglasses on them) they can choose something to put on their spy pig. They can also place something on their spy pig when they draw a Choose a ______, card.
In this type of game, you don't need to have students compete to win, they can just play to show off their style and creativity.
This game will be available for free until Friday when it will become available for purchase. The payed for version will also have black and white pages that your students will be able to color in themselves. (Plus you won't have to use all of your colored ink.)
The version of this game contains the words from Fry's sight word list 201-300. Other versions of this game including ones for the Dolch word lists will be coming out shortly.
The free give away of this game is now over. You can purchase this game for Fry's Word List 1-100, 101-200, 201-300, or 301-400 on my new Spy Pigs page.
Each game is only $1.50.
I've been working on a new game for practicing sight words.
I'm so excited because its coming out soo stinking cute.

The new game is going to be called Spy Pigs. (kinda a pun off of the Spy Kids) The idea is that students will have a set of flash cards of the sight words that they are working on. Of course, simply going through sight word flash cards can get old very quickly. So to get my (and your) students more motivated to study there words I came up with this game.
When your kids get through different sets of their sight word flash cards they will get to choose a piece of clothing or spy accessory to put on their spy pig. Different types of accessories will have different sight words associated with them. So if they want their spy pig to wear a different type of sunglasses they need to go through the sunglasses flash cards.
When they have gone through and finished decorating their spy pig then the spy pigs can be put in a cute display. This activity can also be used for any other subject that you need to use flash cards for. So it's a very versatile game.
I've almost finished making all of the pieces for the game. I still want to come up with a few more tops and a set of different watches. I've also been toying with the idea of also having them choose a spy car for the pigs but that might just double what I have to do for this game.
The first few days after I finish it I will be releasing it for free. So if you want to be alerted when it comes available subscribe to my blog or follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest.
Tell me what you think of the upcoming game. I'd love to hear your comments.
