Sight Word Jenga

My school uses Fry Words and I wanted to find a fun way to work on the sight words with my kiddos. I know that I will have several kiddos this year that will need to practice these and I don't want it to be tedious! So I just came up with the idea of Sight Word Jenga!

I saw the idea for math fact Jenga and I wanted to figure out a way to use it in my literacy classroom. The prep was pretty easy. It took about 10 minutes (if that) to write the words on the blocks. I wrote the words on the widest parts of the blocks and did two words for each block. I also chose to do two different colors but more would probably be cuter.  I snagged my Jenga set at a garage sale so its okay with me that it is missing a few pieces but I had enough to write the 3rd 100 Fry Words on them. I am considering finding more sets and doing some of the other Fry words on them.

Here is how it works:

I think this along with Poison Apple  will be a small group favorite! 


  1. Great Idea!! I found a knock-off version of Jenga at Target and Mills Fleet Farm and use them for the math version but this is an awesome idea!!
