Sight Words Battleship-Style Game

Take a little twist on the concept of sinking a battleship as students hunt for treasure in this sight words game. Students use a wipe-off surface, like a laminated sheet of paper folded in half as their gameboard.

Sitting across from their playing partner, they take turns calling out a number (in place of tricky coordinates) and hoping to land on a letter.

When they discover an entire word they get to keep a treasure coin – first one to get all of their partner’s coins wins!
