Pro-Tip: This game is meant to be played after the words have been introduced through reading and other practice games like these sight words worksheets. You can play this game before all the words have been introduced, but be ready to support them by telling them the words they haven’t studied yet.

Ways to Play Sight Word Bingo

Traditional Bingo Game

Each player chooses a board and a handful of chips (or whatever they will use to cover the squares). Place the sight word cards in a stack face down. One player (or parent) calls out the sight word on the card. Every player looks for the word on the card and covers it if they find it. They have to say the word before they can cover it. The first player to get four across, down or diagonal is the winner.

Blackout Sight Word Bingo

Each player chooses a board and a handful of chips (or whatever they will use to cover the squares). Place the sight word cards in a stack face down. One player (or parent) calls out the sight word on the card. Every player looks for the word on the card and covers it if they find it. They have to say the word before they can cover it. The first player to cover their entire board (blackout) is the winner.

Writing Sight Word Bingo

I love adding the element of writing whenever I can. My theory is that if kids can read the word they can write the word. But, most kindergarteners need a lot of writing practice. For this version of the game, you will need to laminate your game board or slip it into a sheet protector. You will also need a fine tip dry erase marker. I like this one from Amazon because it has an attached eraser. You play the game the same way except instead of covering the game board with a chip each player has to write the word.
