I'm so happy to join The Classroom Game Nook in a "Trick or Treat" blog hop! Halloween is literally around the corner (one week away) and it's time for teachers to go trick or treating with some awesome tips, tricks, treats, and more!

Sight words are fun. Tic-Tac-Toe is fun too! Why not put the two together?

My nephew who is in kindergarten practices his sights words every night. After a few weeks, he got tired of doing the flash cards. I decided to play Tic-Tac-Toe using his sight words. He was more than willing to play!

Set up is simple! Make a large Tic-Tac-Toe board on some paper. Write the sight words in each box.

Write X's and O's on some paper or index cards and you're ready to go! The first time around, I folded a paper in thirds and just traced the lines. Later, I made some boards, X's, and O's on my computer and printed them out.

You can save paper by drawing a Tic-Tac-Toe board on some paper and insert it into a Sheet protector. Use a dry-erase marker to write the letters. You can change the words any time with a eraser or paper towel. You can even insert 2 pages in one sheet placed back-to-back for 2 games in 1. You also have a carrying case for your cards and dry-erase pen!

My nephew Isaiah loves adding numbers so here's a fun Adding to 10 powerpoint game.

Before the big Turkey Day comes, make sure your students know how to count! Students play against the teacher as they count turkeys.

Some turkeys are in rows while others are scattered about. Great for a Thanksgiving review game. You can check out this game here:

  1. I don't do haunted houses at ALL. I do love your sight word game, and think I will use it for a vocabulary review game for my older students.

  2. I love your tic-tac-toe game. It is a great motivator for kids who are getting bored and could be used for so many different objectives. Great idea to use the page protectors so it can be used again and again. Thanks Chandra!

  3. LOVE the Tic-Tac-Toe game! What a great idea! I especially like it is reusable!

  6. Love your tic-tac-toe sight word game! Thanks for the idea! :)

  7. No way to the haunted houses! I'm a big scaredy cat!

  8. I don't visit a haunted house, but there is a Victorian subdivision where ALL the homes are required to go all-out to decorate for Halloween. These folks spend THOUSANDS on their homes & yards. Always worth the trip!

  9. Sight words tic tac toe looks and sounds fabulous!!
