Practice sight word recognition with this fall themed game designed for learning about First Grade Sight Words. The object of the game is to find the acorn hidden behind one of the leaves by using your sight word knowledge to pick your guesses.

Designed for the pocket chart, Where’s the Acorn? is a game for centers or whole group instruction where an acorn is hidden behind a leaf. A poem is chanted where the student(s) must say the sight word they think the acorn is behind. Once guessed, the sight word is removed. If the acorn is behind the leaf, then the acorn must be hidden again to play further. If the acorn is not behind the leaf, then the poem is chanted again and a new sight word is guessed.

This product contains all 41 First Grade Sight Words:
