Have I got a treat for you today! I am so excited for this new game I created… Anyway…I still have football on my mind, with the upcoming Superbowl. Personally I am not really a fan of the NFL. I am a huge college football fan (Go Irish!) but the NFL seem like a bunch of meanies. I say that, yet I have friends from college who played in the NFL and I know that is not entirely the case…but, that is my story and I am sticking to it -the NFL are a bunch of meanies. Anyway, today I created a sight word football game for you. If your kids are anything like mine, they love to play football guys and they will love the educational version of a sight word football game that I created for you. This game can also be modified to be played with the alphabet, and the sounds of the letters too.
Sight Word Football Game
This football sight word game is a lot of fun to play. Here are a few images from the game…
All Dolch Sight Words are included pre-primer through level 3 – so, this activity is great for students from preschool through second grade.
Also, I found a few other fun indoor games that you can play with your little one! We had a snow day today, or, really a cold weather day. Thank goodness I found these fun things to do with my little ones indoors! Enjoy!

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
