FREE Online Sight Word Game – Concentration

Free Games Online – Concentration

In our pursuit to help children develop a sight word vocabulary. We collaborated to create free online concentration games. We hope you find these sight word games both educational and entertaining!

To assist a child in automatically recognizing sight words, we created progressive sight word games. As a child masters a level, he moves to another level that contains both new sight words and old ones. The words in the previous level are also included in the next level. This helps to reinforce previously learned words.

Selection of Sight Words

We selected 12 sight words based on our kindergarten curriculum; every child was encouraged to automatically recognize these words by the end of the school year. We also referenced Fry’s list of instant words, specifically his top 25 which represent about a third of all written material. In addition, these sight words are also included in Dolch’s sight word list, specifically his easier list. The 12 sight words we selected were included in all three sight word lists. The following sight words are repeatedly found in print, making them the perfect starting point.

Level Sight Words
Beginner the, to & I
Intermediate the, to, I, and, a & is
Advanced the, to, I, and, a, is, it, in, you, on, my & we

Sight Word Instruction

Playing concentration is ideal because it provides a child with repeated exposure to a select group of sight words. After playing this game, read a book and point out the sight words your child is trying to master. Repeated exposure to these words will help a child automatically recognize them. Keep it fun. Drama gets my children’s attention so I like to overdramatize as we read – asking them “did you just see what I saw?” I saw the word, “the.” Can you find it again?

In addition, whenever possible, reinforce sight word instruction with worksheets or other fun activities. Children tend to absorb more when having fun. Playing sight word games and participating in fun activities helps a child develop a sight word vocabulary.
