I'm not quite sure why I love teaching sight words, but I do. I really enjoy finding and making new games and materials to teach them. Keeping everything interesting and enjoyable is quite a task.
Two summers ago I worked on our schools Sight Word Committee and here are some of the materials I created.

I have utilized Kelly's Kindergarten http://www.kellyskindergarten.com/Games/GamestoMake/games_to_make.htm for many games that my students love. Sight word Uno has been hands-down the biggest hit EVER. I have used Kelly's format to go with special times and themes throughout the school year. I print color copies on cardstock and laminate them, and I print out black and white copies for the students to use at home. Here is an example of the Ocean version of Sight Word Uno.

I also utilize the old stand-by's; Concentration, Pig, and Roll, Say, Keep. Kathy Gursky's School Bell Site has lots of activities. http://www.theschoolbell.com/Links/Dolch/Contents.html

Here is an example (Valentine Bingo).
