Butterfly Sight Word Memory Game

It's been soooooo crazy at my house lately.....sigh.  I've wrapped up my school year, but I have a week long Applied Linguistics course that I'm taking now.  My district requires new teachers to get ESOL endorsed and this is my FINAL class!  YEAH!!!  I will be officially done on Friday.  Until Friday, it's a long week of classes ALL day long.

My youngest daughter knows that I make games for my students.  She likes to see what I make and look at the cute pictures on them.  She spends a lot of time cutting out random pieces of paper and making "games" that I can take to school to use with my class.  What in the world am I going to tell her next year  when she comes to school with me and realizes I'm not using all of her games???

Lately, she's been begging me to make a game for her to play that has butterflies.  So I whipped up this quick Sight Word Memory Game for her last night.  These are the first nine weeks sight words that Kindergarten teaches in my district.  I figure that since the triplets will be starting Kindergarten in the fall I might as well start working with them this summer.

I will probably add more words to this game later and repost, but this will keep my little princess happy for a day......maybe.


  1. Oh my gosh! This will be PERFECT in my kindergarten class! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. I am SO happy to have found your site! Your absolutely darling creations will most definitely grace my first classroom when I've completed my ACP this summer and am placed in a SpEd classroom :)

    In the meantime, I would absolutely love to see you add a link to fellow TBA author Ana's linky party at so that I (and hopefully other educators!) can find all my/our sight word needs in one place :-D

    Thanks, and good luck on your class!

  3. I am glad that she asked you for a butterfly game! Alyssa and I will be doing a butterfly unit too, but not for awhile so I will have to check back for updates. Thanks again!
