Roll, Find, Read, Squish – Fun Word Review Game with Editable PDF

If you’re looking for an interactive and fun way to review high-frequency words, you’re in the right place!  This word review game was created to go along with our You Can Read Sight Words program, but you can use it to review any words your child is working on. In this post you’ll find a link to a free editable PDF so you can enter your own words and play!

Earlier this week I shared a fun and interactive activity, Sticky Note Word Hunt which is great for learning high frequency words. Building a sight word vocabulary is very important for all readers. Remember, high-frequency words and sight words are not the same thing, be sure to read more here if that’s news to you! We use You Can Read Sight Words {the new and improved version} to focus on teaching high frequency words and my Kindergarten students have learned 12 words so far. This activity was created to help them review in a fun and engaging way!

Roll, Find, Read, Squish WORD REVIEW GAME

First, I chose 8 words from our You Can Read Sight Words units for my students to review. They have learned 12 words so far, but I chose the 8 that they need the most work with. I entered these words into the editable PDF which automatically added them to the activity page:

I printed a copy for each student and put them in a dry erase pocket. The exact pockets we use are linked below.

My students rolled play dough into tiny balls, which is a great way to work on fine motor skills. Once they created enough playdough balls we began the activity!

How to play:

  1. Roll a die
  2. Find the number row
  3. Read the first {or next in line} word in that row
  4. Squish a tiny play dough ball on top of the word to mark it

We play together but you could give each student a die and have them play independently. Since my students are still mastering these words, it was a great way to provide gentle assistance as needed by playing together and the kids finding the same words.

Materials Needed:

  • Editable PDF {link at bottom of post}
  • dice
  • play dough
  • sheet protector or dry erase pocket

This game is a great way to review words your child has learned. Easy to prepare, simple to customize, effective review, and fun to play! The perfect combo for young students!
