This Winter Read and Cover Sight Words activity is perfect for Literacy Centers: Students choose a card and read the word shown. They then search for the word on their mat. Once they find the word, they cover it with a small manipulative (counting cube, colored chip, eraser etc.). Students keep drawing cards until their whole mat is covered.

This is a low-prep activity. There are FOUR different activity mats and card sets in both color and black line. Each mat is pre-filled with a set of 12 sight words. Keep or change them if you wish. Then, simply print and go. Provide students with small manipulatives to cover their words. Use heavy paper and laminate for a write and wipe center activity. Student directions are included.

These Read and Cover activity sets are a great way to review any word list! (**Note: The font size is preformatted to work best with sight words up to 8 letters. Longer words may not fit in the boxes.)

*** Important Note About Editable Activities: In order to edit the word list, you must use Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the PDF file.  The editing features will not work if it is opened in your browser or another viewer.
