Grab Your Leprechaun Hat!

Due to student request, 
we are again going to grab our "hats" to practice reading sight words!

This time it'll be a St. Patrick's Day hat!

Here's the pdf of 100 sight words, leprechaun cards, and pots of gold!

To play, students take turns pulling a word card from the hat.  If the student reads the word card correctly, he keeps the card in his known words collection.  If the student pulls a "tricky leprechaun card", he gets to plays a trick on another reader in the group.  He  is allowed to "steal" a word card from another person's collection of known words.  If the "stolen" card is read correctly, he may keep the leprechaun card and the "stolen" card and add these cards to his known words collection.  If the "pot of gold" card is pulled from the hat, everyone must give all of their known cards to the lucky student!  
Play continues until a rainbow card is drawn!

Happy Reading!


  1. Love this idea! I think I'll use it with our high frequency words and just adding some of the leprechaun and rainbow cards into the mix.
