Students will love this Christmas themed sight word game. Students will pick a random card from the ‘Christmas Farm Tree Cards’ and read the sight word on the card. They will then find it on their recording sheet, trace and color it. Kids in kindergarten need a lot of sight word reading activities and exposure to help develop their reading fluency. These games are a great way to do that!

Print as many recording sheets you need for the set of students in your class. I like to laminate the Christmas Tree Sight Word cards for repeated use. Use a small basket to place the sight word cards in. These two games can easily be differentiated depending on your students’ reading levels. Choose the second game to use with your ELLs or special ed. kiddos and the first game to use with your mainstream kids. Christmas themed activities are always a hit with my students!
Christmas Tree Sight Word Find & Trace
1. For the first game, instruct the students that they will choose one card from the basket and read the sight word on the card. They will then find the same sight word on their recording sheet and trace it. They return this card to the basket and they keep going until all words have been traced and colored! This is a great way to reinforce reading and writing sight words. As an added element of fun, you can have the kids race to see who gets all their sight word ornaments traced and colored first!
2. For the second game (and this one is slightly easier than the first and can easily be used with your ELLs) the students will choose a card, read the sight word and find the matching ornament with the same sight word and then color it.
