The Pop for Sight Words Game Bundle by Learning Resources is a set of learning games that encourages and promotes reading in children ages five and up. The games are fashioned to mimic popcorn containers which is a cute and clever way to draw in the attention of both boys and girls.
The games individually have 100 cards, 92 are sight words, & eight are POP cards. Everything can be contained neatly in each box that features a pretty snug fitting lid. There’s a even a little zip type plastic baggy included in each box to keep the pieces together within the inner compartment of the box. There’s no need to keep up with the instructions as those are displayed on the side of each box.
How the game works is that each player must attempt to have the most words. The game ends when all the pieces of popcorn are used up. You earn those words which are pieces of popcorn by having read the word featured on them correctly. When you draw a POP! card, you return all the cards you’ve gained back to the box. This way of playing was a bit discouraging to my daughter being challenged by a few words and achieving those only then having to put them all back and start all the way over.
However, one part of the rules is when a word is read incorrectly, you set it aside. Modifying the rules to allow for a retry of one of the set aside words is, in my opinion, a better way to play. Some other ideas are removing the POP! cards entirely, shuffling in the set aside words back in when a POP! is drawn, or some other variant you can come up with. The fact you can make your own house rules is what will keep me using it and probably both my children interested.
Overall we pull out this bundle weekly and practice lots of sight word learning. My daughter literally asks for these often but only after we mixed things up. The bundle is a nice combo pack that will help grow your child’s sight word knowledge from kindergarten even possibly through first grade. In my opinion, you’ll get a whole lot more use out of the games if you opt to mix things up from the general playing rules.
