Sight Word Games Boys Will Go For

Do you have a boy who is just learning to read, or one who needs to practice his words a bit? These sight word games for boys are perfect for him.

Learning sight words is an important part of learning to read.

Many times knowing these words give boys the confidence they need to feel that they can then learn other words which leads them to knowing they can unlock the secret to reading.

You are going to love these both for sight words and because they make great activities for boys.

These sight word games are just what boys who are learning their sight words need. They make great activities for boys and are a lot of fun too!

Sight Word Games for Boys

We found some very cool sight word games for you and your boys to play together.

They are all on topics that boys like and they are all a lot of fun as well.

Think about how excited your boy is going to be when he can recognize the Dolch sight words in these games.  Then when he sees them in a book and he realizes can read them! It is so rewarding for them.

If you don’t have time to make a game, see our list of top sight word games to buy now.

We have a really fun (and super popular!)  Free Printable Sight Word Game right here on our site that is played with LEGO Minifigs! We have gotten a lot of great feedback on the game. Parents and teachers say their boys love it. I hope you will try it with your boy.

Try our dinosaur sight word game for a fun way to get them moving and also learning their words. It uses plastic dinosaurs and printable word cards.  I made a video to show you how to play. See the game, print it out and watch the video. Dinosaur sight word game.

Do you have a boy who likes pirates? Maybe you need to introduce him to these fun Pirate Sight Word Games! They will have him digging and hunting for treasure while learning his words.

Rev up your boy’s engines with this Sight Word Drag Racing Game. Love the free printable drag race bracket to keep track of the winner. Fun!

You know I couldn’t skip a game that includes throwing balls and crashing cups! Cup Crash Sight Word Game is a great way to include reading words, coordination, and a bit of target practice to boot.

Aliens! This Roll-an-Alien Game looks like a lot of fun. It comes with a free printable sight word game board. You roll the dice to build your alien. Pretty cute, isn’t he?

What do you get when you have aliens, crashing cups, and racing cars? Fun sight word games!!

Try a Shark Sight Word Game  that is played with water. Really neat because it uses shark fins with the words on them and shark teeth with letters. You find the teeth to match the words on the fin.

(by the way, don’t miss our shark ideas!)

Get them moving with this Jump and Grab Game. Words are hung up and they need to jump to grab them in this active game.

If you have a boy who enjoys sensory play, or really likes to dig about and get messy, this is the game for him. The Sensory Sight Word Game is played with shaving cream.

Super ways to play and have fun while learning your dolch sight words.


Make sure you are waiting until your boy is asking to learn new words and wants to learn to read.

There is no benefit to pushing him to read but there can be harm in doing so.

We are big fans of hands-on learning. It really does make for great activities for boys. Have fun with these sight word games!

Awesome sight word games for boys who are always on the move! These action sight word games are just right for bodily-kinesthetic learners and boys who don't like to sit still. They can learn to read in a way that works best for them. Click the picture to see 9 fun games.

Try Action Games too! These games are all about movement.

If you have a boy who needs to move while he is learning you have to check these out.

He will be moving and learning at the same time.

One thing people have really liked about the collections we put together is that their boys ask to play these sight word games again and again.

You can’t ask for more than that, right?!
