Colors of Love Sight Word Game (Freebie!)

Pin It
Here's a fun Valentine game for young learners!

This sight word game helps young learners practice reading color words.  To play this game all you need are  8 game pieces per player (we used clear glass pebbles) and a copy of the printable materials below!

 To grab a copy click the image below or click HERE

1. Shuffle cards and place them in a pile face down.

2. Each player takes a game board and 8 game pieces. 

3. Players take turns choosing a card, reading the word out loud and covering up the corresponding colored heart on their board.  

4. The first player to cover all their hearts wins! 

Start with all the game pieces on the board and play the game in reverse.  The first player to clear their board first wins! 

Meeting the Needs of All Learners 
I included two different sets of cards with this game.  The first set of cards has color words with colored hearts...great for little ones learning to match colors.  The second set of cards has just color words...great for learners practicing sight word reading.  The first time my preschooler played this game we used a combination of cards since she was able to read some color words (red, yellow, blue, green, white), but some of the words were a little tricky or new to her (orange, black, brown, purple, gray, pink).  Each time we played she was able to use fewer and fewer colored heart cards, until she was able to read all of words independently!
