POP for Sight Words Game

Kids will gobble up foundational reading skills as they recognize and read aloud sight words. Fast-paced game play is great for improving fluency and vocabulary. Players can keep piling up the kernels, as long as they read the words correctly. Pull a POP kernel, and all your pieces go back! For two to four players.

Sight words are high-frequency words that are crucial for reading fluency. Make sight-word practice as much fun as possible with our popular Pop for Sight Words game! Basic game-play instructions are printed on the box—but look for ways to put your own twist on things! For example, decide on a silly activity that everyone has to perform when you pull a POP kernel. Or, challenge children by asking them to read the word and use it in a sentence. The options are endless.

100 Most Frequent Words in Print

Pop for Sight Words covers the 100 most frequent words in English (print). Game play is designed to expose children often, and repeatedly, to these words that must be learned. Simple game play is non-threatening and can be varied based on your needs: * Pick a popcorn card, read the word correctly, and build your popcorn pile * Don't pull the POP card or all your pieces go back in the box! * Player with the most pieces wins!

The Pop for Sight Words game is compact and lightweight, and the instructions are printed on the box so they'll never be lost—great for taking on the go! The pieces are durable and easy to clean. Once the first 100 words have been mastered, consider playing Pop for Sight Words 2 for an additional challenge.

One of the hardest things to do while trying to teach your child to read is keep his/her attention. Well this game offers the opportunity to do it. The little popcorns are cute and the box is exciting. The game LOOKS fun. I believe the instructions for the game are pretty straight up. You know, you pick one to read, and then he picks one to read. Whoever has the most when you get tired wins. Also, the instructions say that when a "POP" card is picked, the player loses all his cards. BAD IDEA. That will not make the game fun. Instead, when we find a "POP" card, everyone has to stand up and pop around the room like a popcorn. Now this makes reading the cards exciting. The normal player instructions are a little boring for my 4 year old, too. But throw in his noirsy trash truck that gets to haul off the popcorns he earns, and it becomes a blast for him. Add a few imaginary products (like pink elephants, dog paint, dust mite houses, whatever) that he can buy with his earned popcorn currency, and it gets even better. For an imaginary rabbit my son will read any card he can. Then he wants to read one to get the rabbit food, an imaginary collar, a rabbit hutch, and on and on. With this approach I get tired way before he does.

My son is 4 and is reading 1st grade level with absolute ease. This is mostly because of starfall.com and morestarfall.com , but these cards help him with the words that can't be sounded out so easily. These words have to be memorized... like the word "please" and "who" and "where" and "the". Other words in the game are: big, run, ran, if, to, today, what, then, well, ride, see, little, do, this, into, now, and, went, could, on, no, said, pretty, at, my, is, there, fun, all, say, are, under, some, soon, be, he, that, it, a, and an. There are 100 words in all, I think.

I am a kindergarten teacher and use this game with small groups to practice word wall words. We can play a quick game in as short as 5 minutes. Even my students who are struggling to read just a few high frequency words enjoy POP. It can be made easier or more challenging based on the words one includes in the popcorn cup. The words are printed on thick, glossy cardboard with one side colored to look like popped corn. After reading the word, I have my students use it in a sentence. They like to try to use all their pieces in a sentence.
It does practice reading words in isolation and the children love playing it.

When I first bought this game, I thought it would be an ingenious way to help my learning-disabled son, who struggles with reading, with his sight words. We had fun for a few games, but my son lost interest after awhile. It seems that the overly repetitive nature of the game can be a turnoff for kids, even though repetition can be a good quality to have in learning in general. The way the game is structured, in that a red POP! piece of "popcorn" means the player who draws it has to return all his/her "earned" pieces to the box, means that many sight words can be drawn numerous times, only to be put back and drawn again, even if the box's pieces are mixed. This may be helpful with some early learners (I'm guessing very young children around 4 or 5 years old would fare better with this game), but my son quickly tired of it and wanted to turn to something else after just a few plays. I have to admit that I didn't blame him; there isn't a large variety of new words to hold either a parent's or a child's interest.

Advantages are that the game is compact and portable, and the pieces are fairly durable and easy to clean. That being said, use caution if you have very small children (toddlers and younger) who are still prone to putting things in their mouths, as the "popcorn pieces" seem like they are small enough to cause a choking hazard.

We got this about a week ago to use now that school is over. I homeschool and want to keep them learning without them knowing they are learning. :) This is MUCH more fun than flashcards, but the same concept. I have a 5 and 6 year old and we played together. I made up my own rules...when they got 10 words that they read on their own, they'd get a small sticker or piece of candy. (I let them keep them in their hand and it was a great math exercise as well. If they had 7, I would ask, "How many more do you need to get to 10?") They were so excited that they were bouncing on my bed as we played. (Great idea!) So instead of telling them that they can't jump (as most moms do), I told them that if they got a "POP" card that they could jump "X" amount of times on the bed. They loved it! My older two even wanted to play! I got this for seven dollars and some change, but I'd pay full price looking back. Well, worth the money! The box is cardboard, but very durable, so are the popcorn pieces. I agree with the other moms that you should play WITH your child! Some of the words include: (easier ones like) me, in, as, a, but, I, go, ran, if, my, see, but, and, him, for, did, (harder ones like)said, with, some, ride, could, little, down, jump, play, under. So this could easily be adaptable if you are the one picking the pieces for them to read. (Or you could only put those cards in the box if you want them to choose.) You could play with several ages and only pick appropriate "level" words for each child, too. Again, well worth the money as it's fun, educational, and adaptable. So we'll get a full summer's worth of play (and more) out of this for sure!
